I didn't upgrade the catalog.
There’s a ? next to all the files because it doesn’t recognize the drive, since it's called back up.
For LR to recognize it, can I simply change the drive’s name to be the same as the original in the catalog?
Since that drive was working with my old imac using snow leopard and LR 5.7.1, will it interface ok with LR 6?
You need to upgrade the LR 5 catalog to work with LR 6
Yes you can or you can tell LR what drive name to look for.
Yes once you point LR to use that drive to find the image files.
Got it. Thank you! I had updated the catalog but managed to do it all as you suggested.
The second external drive is proving problematic but I shall reattack tomorrow.
If the name of the drive matches what was previously used, then you shouldn't have these question mark icons. So you could try changing the name of the drive to what it was previously, that should fix the problem.
Thanks again for helping me with this.
I would like to mark it correct but that option doesn't show on my computer.
Where is it found?
It didn't show because the thread wasn't marked as a question. It now is.
Glad you got it fix.
Hello, Again I tried to mark it correct but it says no actions are available.
Thank for your trouble. No need to mark as correct.
Just glad you got it figured out and working.
