    Changed file names outside Lightroom - what now?

      I'm a newbie LR user looking for help with a specific problem.

       

      I've just realised that partway through last year my photos should have rolled over from file names C_04xxxx.CR2 to C_05xxxx.CR2 with the result that there were around 4500 files with the prefix C_04 rather than the prefix C_05. Some of these have already been imported into LR. I've corrected the names of the offending files outside LR but realised that this will affect photos in the imported collections.

       

      I'm not sure how to correct the issue so my edits are not lost.

       

      Thanks
