Assuming that your kept the same directory structure by copying the root directory of your pictures folder, in the LR Library module, go to the Folders panel.
If your Folders panel does not show the directory tree like Finder shows the tree, right-click "show parent folder" on the folders as needed.
On the top-most folder that you moved, right-click and select "relocate" or "find missing" or similar option.
Thank you. When I right click the following options appear: Save Metadata, Synchronize Folder and Update Folder Location.
I activate Synchronize Folder and a limited number of photos were effected. With Update Folder Location, noting active shows up when I try to access the lrcat files.
So, none of the edits, etc. seem to be appearing in the new SSD location.
I appreciate your input/feedback.
You are probably seeing the command "Update Folder Location" because you copied (not moved) the photos. Is that what you did?
If that is what you did (copied, not moved), the select Update Folder Locaiton and point to the location of the photos (not the .LRCAT file) on the new drive. For more details, see this document and scroll down to the section that says "Updating Folder Location". Adobe Lightroom - Find moved or missing files and folders
Yes. I tried to import, but the task wouldn't complete so I copied the photos.
Thank you for the file reference.
Will post again after I've worked through the recommended moves.
Let me provide some advice in the meantime. Importing and synchronizing is never the way to fix these things, they only make the problem worse. Once you have imported the photos into Lightroom, do not re-import the photos. DO NOT!
