Either LR has already imported those photos but it thinks they are in a different folder—you can search the All Photos collection by filename to try to find them, or some of the photos are JPGs with the same base filename as a raw file in the folder so the JPGs are considered sidecars of the raws and wouldn’t both show up as separate photos in LR. There is a setting in LR preferences to treat JPGs and RAWs separately and if you enable this then you can synchronize the folder and see the JPGs as well as their corresponding raw files.
Thanks for your suggestion. It did not work. There are no sidecars in
I can't search the all photo's because I do not know the filenames of
the photos that are missing. I would have to manually compare each file.
I found a solution myself after this.
I moved all the files in the folder in LR to a different folder. LR did
not have any files left.
In windows I opened the empty folder and there were still all the files
I couldn't import.
I reviewed them all and decided to delete them all, as they were of no
great importance, as I discovered that some of them were allready in
In the future I will not do anything to the folders outside LR. I
believe that was the cause of my problem.
Thank you again for your reaction. It got me to the solution.
