I have lost some of the folders in the Library. They exist in Explorer but somehow got removed from the Library. I can bring them back in but I'm worried it will happen again in LR. Please help me understand what happened and how I can prevent recurrence. I'm using Win7.
A couple of possibilities:
1 > You right clicked on the folders and chose to remove them from Lightroom.
2 > You created a new catalog, and the folders that are missing are part of the other catalog.
Do any of these scenarios seem like they could be a possibility?
Yes. It seems I inadvertently created another catalog and images were going into it rather than the catalog I intended. Thank you!
