    Why does Lightroom lose keywords?

      A few days ago Lightroom reported that I had 0 photographs without keywords. Hooray at last I've completed my categorising.

      The next day I moved a couple of folders and discovered some duplicate photos. Lightroom wouldn't delete them (don't ask me why the error message was as usual uninformative), so I deleted them in File Explorer.

      I then resynchronised the folder and now have more than 6k photos without keywords. Many of the photos have .xmp side-car files containing keywords, so how can I force Lightroom to read the files that it created?

      I'm using Lightroom 5.7 on an Acer Aspire E1-571 running64bit Windows 8.1.

      Thanks in advance
