    Lightroom won't recognize external hard drive

    OlySue Level 1

      I have stored my photos on an external drive for awhile because I ran out of room on my computer. The drive with all the photos shows up perfectly on my computer, but is greyed out with question marks in Lightroom 5. There was a recent power failure for a couple of minutes, and this has been a problem since then. II work on a Mac OS 10.11.6.

      I am not sure how to restore the drive to LIghtroom. There are many thousands of large raw files on this drive, so re importing them would be a huge undertaking. Is there a simple way to reboot this drive to Lightroom? ( I have tried restarting the computer a few times. This has worked before, but not this time.) Thanks for any help you can give.
