    Not possible to move folders

    benoitr5155416

      Hello,

       

      I'm a MAC User using LR 6.7

      I'm using a NAS on which my pictures were stored under a shared volume (ex: Volume/Photo1)

      This was visible under Lightroom as follow:

      Folders:

      Photo1

           Photo1

               2016 Apr 1

             

      I just bought a new NAS on which i want to transfer my photos hence using Ligthroom to make this move.

      Question: How can i add the new "Volume/Photo2" as a folder in Lightroom?

       

      The above question may appear a simple one but when i tried "Add a Folder" in LR i got the Import interface which is not what i want

      I tried importing new photo to this new "Volume/Photo2" which resulted in the following structure :

      Folders:

      Photo 1

           Photo 1

              2016 Apr 1

              ...

      Photo 2

           2016 Apr 2

       

      from there i tried moving the folders from Volume/Photo1 to the new destination but..... i can only move the folder under the sub-folder on the Volume/Photo2 created while importing new photos....

      in other words i would like to have

      Folders

           Photo 2

               2016 Apr 1

               2016 Apr 2

      and the only thing i can do is

      Folders

           Photo 2

                2016 Apr 2

                     2016 Apr 1

      Which means adding the folder from Photo 1 as a sub folder of Photo 2 / 2016 Apr 2.....

       

      Somehow i'm stuck and did not find a way to easily add a folder to my LR catalog and move everything i had on a different location to this new one....

       

      Please help

       

      Thx
