hoping someone can help me out with this brain burner.
My macbook crashed! luckily i have a backup of all my stuff on time machine.
Using a new mac i have imported and opened the previous category and easily accessed the majority 25k of image files I have stored on an external drive (master drive).
The other 2 thousand originals that were stored on the now dead laptop which have copies on time machine, although can be opened and edited with time machine attached - cannot be dragged and added to my master drive.
So in summary.: both master drive and TM images fall under one single LR category, yet I cannot move the time machine images into the master drive.
