Folder Could Not Be Found Error - Please Help, Don't Want To Re-Edit EVERYTHING!

Feb 9, 2010 12:40 PM

So I just edited a huge set of photos.  I put them into a collection, then undid the collection.  But now when I go back to the edited photos in their original location & click develop there is an error saying ""this folder could not be found".  I can see all the pictures & the edits I made in the Library though, so I'm thinking they're still there somewhere.


When I click on Library, it says they are located in G:\Lily\2010  (but I can't locate this folder G: on my hard drive)


When I right click & do show in explorer it says there is no file located in this specific path


I tried re-uploading the unedited pics from my camera into a new folder on C: & then right clicking on the G:\lily\2010 & selecting "find missing folders" & then selecting the newly uploaded unedited pics & that didn't work either.


Is there something I'm missing here?  How can fix this so I don't have to re-edit all of these photos again?  PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!!  Thanks in advance

    Try "update folder location" from the same menu you tried "show in explorer" before and then point to the folder the images are in.

    The one on the far left menu is what I meant. It should work, but I've not used the beta - isn't there a beta forum?

    Part of the problem is that either you moved/renamed the folder that contained the photos, or maybe the hard disk that it was on changed letters.


    I recommend people not move folders around that contain photos. It is much better, in my opinion, to organize with keywords and not organize via folders.
