I'm a photo major and I use Windows computers at home and the school uses Macs. I have a small 256GB drive that I've formated exFAT so that it is compatible with both and I have no problems reading/writing from/to the drive in either OS. I have started a Lightroom catalog on it and imported images for my school projects. The issue that I have is when I plug it into a Mac at school, Lightroom can't locate the images. I can go through each image and locate it and everything works fine UNTIL I go back to my PC, then Lightroom can't locate them again and I have to go through and locate each image again! Does anyone else have this problem AND, more importantly, does anyone know how to fix this? Both the school and I use CC in case anyone needed to know.
Thank you in advance,
First we need to be sure that everything is setup correctly.
Check that your Catalog resides in the 256GB Drive you've set up.
Also both computers must read the same catalog.(Check Under Catalog Settings)
Place the catalog and the Pictures both in same drive and then open it on your MAC/Windows PC
