I Upgraded to Win10. I have my main LRCC catalog stored on a D drive. Within the LRCC I can move files and folders.
My problem is that I have a catalog on an external drive, and when I load that catalog, I cannot move either files or folders. If I exit and use windows explorer, I can move files or folders but it asks for administrator permission each time. I am signed in with administrator permission. After I move things in Windows, I can reload the catalog into LRCC and "find missing" to reconnect, but this is tedious at best. Anyone have any suggestions?
It seems those folders do not have complete read and write permissions.
You need to give full read and write permissions to your user account on those specific folders or the main parent folder where all images are stored through File Explorer.
Chetna's reply is a good one from the technical perspective.
From a management perspective, you are probably better off using Explorer to move the folders (then reconnect them in LR).
LR is not a file browser. It does OK moving small numbers of files. For big numbers of files it often has problems.
thanks for your suggestion. I can now move files & folders with LRCC
