    RAW Files being moved when exporting

    andrewsq

      Hi,

       

      I'm relatively new at LR and still finding my feet when it comes to terms with workflow etc.  What I can't work out is if I import a set of RAW files (I don't create a new catalog each time as I haven't researched into how this works), then export to JPG:  the RAW files have been moved from their original folder to a new one.

       

      e.g. Original path for RAW files I import  is C:Windows/Pics/SmithFamilyRAW

       

      I export the edited jpgs to C:Windows/Pics/SmithWeddingFinal

       

      But my RAW files move from C:Windows/Pics/SmithWeddingRAW  to C:Windows/Pics/2016/dd-mm-yy (date picture was taken)

       

      This is proving a nightmare to manage and retrieve the RAW files.  Especially if the pictures were taken across multiple days/weeks!

       

      Any ideas and help for a LR rookie before I throw my laptop against a wall?

       

      Thanks in Advance,

      Andrew
