My desktop HD is filling up, so I want to move my image files from the desktop to an external HD. I have moved most of the files from within LR and without incident. However, I have a bunch of files that were taken on vacation, and originally downloaded to my iPad. When I got home they automatically synced to my catalog and were copied to my desktop into a folder called mobile downloads.lrdata. I can't make LR recognize that folder so that I can copy the photos within LR. I also would like to change the target for the synced mobile files to something more user-friendly.
Any suggestions how I can (1) make LR recognize the .lrdata file/folder so that I can copy the images, and (2) how to designate a folder on my external as the target for files synced from my iPad?
I have to say, for a program that touts its flexibility, it's remarkably rigid in a number of ways.
Thanks for the response.
