OK, so this is beyond irritating. I opened a collection because I am getting ready for a contest submission, and low and behold, Lr is telling me it can't find the files for said collection. I click the "!" to locate one, just to see what happened to my file, and it opened file explorer to the original parent folder in the catalog file....
SO, I was able to locate the file, HOWEVER, when I selected it, it didn't locate the rest of them, which are there as well. So I have "located" about five of them now, checking and unchecking the "Find Nearby Missing Photos" box, to no avail. Has anyone else experienced this?? I really hope that I don't have to locate all 286 files....
Have you tried right clicking on the folder in the library module and clicking on "Update Folder Location"?
I don't know what I am doing really...I did what you said, and it didn't change anything. At least I think I did what you said.
In the folder drop-down, I located the folder and right clicked it.
Selected "Update Folder Location", and when it opened there was nothing there.
I selected "Select Folder" anyway, and there was no change.
There must be something I am missing. LOL.
When I click on the folder, the image files are there, just not in the collection. I can honestly work with this for now.
