I added a new western digital hard drive to store photos. I am working on a Surface pro3. (Windows.) After I hooked up the new hard drive, I move the old photos that were in the catalog to the new hard drive. I then went to Lightroom to tell it where the photos were. Pretty simple. However, I will not recognize my last folder of photos. I import them, and lightroom says there are no photos there, but when looking into explorer, they are clearly in the folder. I tried to sync the folders and no luck. So it worked for 98% of what I was trying to do, but the last folder, and my current working folder, it will not find.
Something in the operating system? Lightroom? User error?
Are you sure that last folder doesn't have a bunch of Shortcuts to where the original, real, images are?
Yes. file size tells me they are the originals
