    "Lightroom was unable to prepare the selected file@....for editing.  It will not be opened


      I am trying to edit images that are on my last external hard drive (filed as of a year ago) using the external editor processer for Elements/Nik Software.  I can do all other editing in Lightroom without a problem and I can export those photos to other places such as a folder on the desktop or to smug mug....Processing to go into Nik software or Elements is the only thing I can't do.  I don't have this problem when I process photos that are on my newest external hard drive.
