    Why did my folder system change?

      Hello Lightroom Users

       

      I have been using Lightroom for roughly 5 years now and love the software.

       

      Yesterday I encountered my first 'real' problem within Lightroom and I am at a loss as to how it happened and how I can resolve the problem.

       

      In short, my 'Folder' system in the Library module has changed.

       

      Rather than showing just the folders (Folder names) that I have created within Lightroom (as it always has) the folders panel is now acting like a browser of my hard drive and I am having to search out the folders by going through all drop down menus. Just like using 'Finder' on a Mac. How and why this has happened I do not know? I am always very strict about where I place my files when importing.

       

      This is causing much frustration. I'd really appreciate some feedback to help resolve this problem. I am attaching two screen grabs of how the Folder structure now looks within the Lightroom Library module. One is an expanded view.

       

      Your help is much appreciated. Cheers!
