Can you right-click on the folder in the left hand panel, and choose update folder location? Does that do anything for you?
None of that right clicking was working...except for "find missing images"//which it did..but then I had a collection of "missing images" and had no clue what to do with them
Last night before I went to bed I decided to change the name of my new external drive to the exact same name as the drive I copied the images from....and it worked perfectly. Lightroom grabbed everything and I was running again.
Im a bit uneasy about that solution tho..
No reason to be uneasy.
Is this a legitimate way to do this? Been done.obviously?
Seems like a total hack to me...
