I have a MacBook Pro and a LaCie external drive that I keep my photos on.
Until several months ago all was just fine.
Then I started seeing replications of folders under new ones that I created.
Like I created a 2015 Soccer folder and when looking at my drive in Finder, I would also see a 2015 Basketball folder
I just created a new catalog (but am using the same external drive) for my Daughter-in-laws graduation.
I imported the photos into that folder.
But I found that there were additional folders created as sub folders under hers that had images but not of that event.
I have used "Finder" as a way to correct these issues but also wonder if that is what is corrupting my catalogue.
I would like to create a clean cataloge and if necessary start a new external drive and import my old images into it.
Dos anyone have words of wisdom for me??
If Finder is seeing the extra folders where they should not be, there is the possibility that the drive is going bad and it is corrupting your catalog.
Well, I thought of that. So I reformatted a LaCie drive that is just 9 months old and was not used much.
Any other thoughts??
