Do you mean you moved the photos (instead of "i moved lightroom")?
The easiest way to fix the problem is to move the photos (using your operating system) back to where they were before.
Alternatively, you can reconnect entire folders (or an entire folder hierarchy) using Adobe Lightroom - Find moved or missing files and folders
There's really little benefit to moving photos to a SSD, you will never notice the speed difference, see this study: Will an SSD Improve Adobe Lightroom Performance? | Computer Darkroom

remained on the hdd (in the optical bay). the OS was upgraded from snow

missing files and folders

reduce. it does reduce in Folders.
2) here are some missing photos in Desktop in Lightroom but when i double
click on a folder in desktop all that appears in the lightroom window is

You are going to have to check your permissions. I'm not a Mac user, so I can't tell you how to do that.
