    lost folders in lightroom cc

      Somehow I have lost the connection to photo folders and photos on my external drive. The drive is listed under folders in the library view. I am able to see a subfolder:( A) but all sub folders and photos are listed in gray and folders have (?). When I try to do find folder, I find the location on the external drive and when I try to connect, the folder disappears from the list in my lightroom library. Any thoughts?

          It doesn't disappear, it moves to somewhere else in your folder hierarchy on the external drive. Why? Because you just told Lightroom to use a folder on the external drive as the source for these photos. Look for the folder in Lightroom's Folder Panel under the external drive. It will be there, exactly where you told Lightroom to put it.
