You can include screenshots directly in a forum message if you go to the web version of the forums via the link in each notification e-mail. I clicked on the first dropbox screenshot and it says “the file is uploading” (not downloading) under a generic image icon. A screenshot should take a fraction of a second to download on broadband.
Thanks for letting me know. I got the screenshots in an extra reply...
The Finder Screen Shot is not a folder structure, so it is not possible for anyone to compare the two. Please post a folder structure as seen by Finder.
What I see here is a folder named "06"; in that folder is a long list of files, not sure if it is a complete list or not; LR says there are 94 files in the folder "06" which is inside folder "12". Seems reasonable to me.
It is not where the photos were.
I have a structure of year/month/day that I maintain.
The files were in 2015/12/06, but now after I generated the photo-merge, they are outside the normal structure (in Lightroom).
Lightroom build a new file-structure. The basic file structure is under the dir "photos".
Now these photos are placed outside of the photos-dir (in lightroom) but not in the finder...
The 06 folder (in the finder) is placed in the /12/ folder in the /2015/ folder in the finder.
I am still not seeing the whole picture here. In your LR shot, it shows that the EHD "My Passport" has 2 top level folders, "2015" and "Photos". However, your Finder shot presumably only shows the "Photos" folder in what I presume is "My Passport". Are you saying that the top level folder "2015" is not there? And are you saying that it appears only in LR? Please post a complete screen shot of the Finder as shown here. My EHD is labeled "Photos 1" and also has 2 top level folders, "Joe's Photos" and "LRBackup5". If LR shows the 2nd folder, than it should be seen by Finder. LR will not generate new folders on its own unless you tell it to.
Once more some screenshots and a detailed explanation.
It started with a Panorama Photo Merge put the generated panorama DNG in an extra folder outside of the Lightroom structure (in Lightroom) but not in the finder.
The representation in Lightroom is incorrect.
I cannot change it to a correct version.
1.14 Tb of 2.0 Tb has been used. There is enough free space on the disk called "My Passport".
The first one is the view in Lightroom of the file-structure.
The following is the view in the finder:
You can see that in Lightroom there are no photos in /2015/12/06/.
You can see that in the Finder the situation is different.
When I do "Update folder location" (function in Lightroom) of /2015/12/ the whole month /2015/12/ moves out of the Root called "Photos" in Lightroom and installs itself above that. (result below) while (of course) in the finder nothing changes.
I am not able to put the /12/06/ folder back in Lightroom on the correct spot (/My Passport/Photos/2015/12/06/). Lightroom reports that the folder already exist.
Optimizing the catalog does not change the structure of the files in Lightroom.
In the Finder view, the folder "2015" certainly does not appear in the window. LR is saying that the folder is indeed on the "My Passport" EHD, otherwise I would expect to see a "?" on that folder icon indicating that it was missing.
Having said that, the first column (begins with NikCollec..) is apparently longer than the view window. Can I safely assume that you have scrolled that column to the top and to the bottom, and that folder is in fact not shown anywhere?
Your view is arranged by "Tags". If you arrange the view by "Name", the numbered folders should appear first. The view is also confusing in that I see what are hidden files and folders. Did you set up your Mac to show these?
If, in the LR folder structure, you right click on the folder "2015" that is outside of "Photos" and select "Show in Finder" where does it take you?
The OP is on a Mac so the menu is slightly different; the equivalent is "Show in Finder".
We're asking two different things.
Show in Finder goes to the disk folder, which is what you're wanting.
I want Show Parent Folder to see if it merges with the other folder structure or not.
OK, I see what you are looking for. Yes, two different things.
