Recently I decided to clean out my Lightroom catalogue but keep all the photos on the computer. I wanted to keep the large Quick Collection I had accumulated on Lightroom, however, and in order to do this I selected my entire Quick Collection and labelled all of these photos 'My Quick Collection'. This was the only label I had on Lightroom. Then I deleted all the photos under the 'no label' category, leaving only my quick collection remaining. However, now if I go onto a photo from my quick collection, a banner appears saying 'folder cannot be found' and I am unable to edit my photos! and Lightroom will not let me export them. However if I import new photos everything is normal for those photos. Help!
Let us start at the beginning..
Which version of Lightroom are you using and what is you computer OS version??
I am finding your description a little confusing, can you provide screen shots of the messages and post them here?? I have never heard of a "folder cannot be found message...
Thanks and don't panic..
