Library module folders do not show correct number of images in subfolders. For example, my main Pictures library resides under a folder named "Pictures", with subfolders named by date and location (2010-04 Florida). Although there are about 12,000 images in "Pictures", it only indicate a few hundred. Can I solve the problem by using an earlier backed-up catalog, then importing recent files not included in the back-up? Is there a preferred way to do this, or can I just click on the back-up catalog?
First, abandon this idea of going to an old catalog and re-importing the new stuff, not just in this situation but in any situation. Let me say this very LOUD: RE-IMPORTING IS NEVER A GOOD SOLUTION TO ANYTHING.
In the Library menu, make sure that Show Photos in Subfolders is checked.
Thanks, that did the trick. I wish I knew how the Show Folders option got unchecked!
