I'm trying to rename an external hard drive from within LR.
If I try and rename one of the local folders, the drop down menu has the option to rename, as can be seen here:
The folder I want to rename is currently entitled Samsung portable 1. Clicking on that does not give the option to rename:
I have tried changing it in finder and then relinking it within LR, but it doesn't work. Instead it says "the selected folder or one of its subfolders is already in Lightroom. Do you want to combine these folders?" Merging doesn't do it.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance :-)
Change the name in finder and then close Lightroom and re-open that .
Lightroom should reflect the changed name.
it worked for me here, but I am using a windows machine, so I wonder that should work for MAC also.
Hi Jitendra, thanks a lot, that's worked perfectly. It let me relink after closing.
