Whenever I import a series of images into LR, I have the box checked to make a 2nd copy to such and such a folder....in this case an external HD.
When I go to the YEAR, and then to the folder it says : IMPORTED then the date.
How can I have that folder named exactly what I am naming the folder it is going to to begin with...
2nd copy is intended for short term insurance against importing problems, not for long term backup.
The ramification: you don't get to choose name, since it already adequately describes what (imported files) and when (the date).
My advice: delete 2nd copy of imported files after true backup (the old ones anyway, if not all of them), or forget about them..
I mean, they contain all the junk as well as the good stuff (I delete well over half the pictures I take), which is good at first (cheap insurance..), but down the road: not so much.
Don't shoot the messenger ,
you are right but there should we should have the option.....
