I recently needed to make room on my PC so I transferred my entire Pictures folder onto my external hard drive. Apparently any photos I had edited in CS5 then saved in Lightroom were moved and I cannot find where they are saved to locate in Lightroom. When I click on them in Lightroom it just says "This folder cannot be found". Its only for photos edited in both Lightroom and CS5, any that were only in Lightroom can be found on my external hard drive where I backed them up, I'm only looking for files with "edit" in them (e.g. _DSC6181-edit.tif). Any help in finding these files that were apprently moved would be great, thanks!
There are no edited files. Lightroom stores all the adjustments in the catalog. It applies those adjustments to the image whenever you choose that image in Lightroom. Since you moved all of your images to the external hard drive, that is where they are located. And you are going to have to go through the process of linking everything up again.
