It seems that you already have the images in the catalog.
If you wish to, you can move the images from one location to another by drag and drop action.
Or else if you have the folder in another location, you can update the location and merge the folders.

Hi Mrinmay Majhi,
I do indeed already have them in the catalog because I tried to import them but the problem lies in the fact that it has split the destination. Some of the files are in the correct folder (only 6 of them) and the rest have gone to an unknown location that I can't find and I don't know why. Why would it split the destination? And how can I stop it from doing this next time? Also, how can I locate the last import that has been split?
As Mrinmay already suggested: Simply drag&drop the photos into the correct folder in the library in LR.
For the next import, make sure to select the correct target location in the panel on the right side in the import dialog.
Okay, so I've worked out what is actually going on. I can't have the same picture in 2 different folders? The program is not allowing me to import my "favourites cut" into a new folder because it recognises that some of the photos are the same as what are in the "main" folder. If I drag and drop as suggested, it simply moves them which is not the solution I want. How can I get around this?
To clarify, the old version allowed me to have more than one copy of the same photo in different folder locations and 6.2.1 does not. Is there going to be a patch to solve the import issue that everyone is struggling with?
Need to re-write:
Since 6.2, the new import dialog does not allow to import duplicates.
You can rename the files, or you can roll back: http://www.lightroomqueen.com/how-do-i-roll-back-to-lightroom-2015-1-1-or-lightroom-6-1-1/

Thank you so much for the links. I will try to roll back this evening and will let you know how I get on! What a silly update!
