Help please. I was in the middle of editing a session when my computer updated and closed out of the session. And now I cannot locate the images again? There is something like a settings symbol on the catalog. But a ! on the images themselves. When I try to open the images in the Develop mode it tells me the folder cannot be found. All the answers I could find I have tried like locating and updating the catalog, everything. I'm lost and I don't know what to do anymore. Someone please point me in the right direction.
Thank you in advance for your time.
Can you show us screen captures of the "settings symbol on the catalog"?
The exclamation point on the photos indicates that the photos are not in the location that Lightroom expects them to be. You need to locate the actual location of the photos, according to your operating system, and once you know that you can follow these instructions to fix the problem: Adobe Lightroom - Find moved or missing files and folders
