    Photo Library experienced accidental massive renaming

    jayc91888360

      Large amounts of my Lightroom Library are experiencing issues locating my files because for some reason Lightroom is searching for the my files names with dates added to the front (which do not exist).

       

      Example:

      I had uploaded and edited file "DSC01703.JPG" in Lightroom, and it was categorized properly in my system at the time. For some reason now Lightroom is Looking for "20170120-DSC01703.JPG" and thus can't find the image because the original file doesn't have the date listed before it on my hard drive. This is happening on a very large scale in my Lightroom Library. I know I can reload the image folders into Lightroom, but then I would lose all my edits.

       

      Is there any way I can tell Lightroom to stop looking for the files with the date added on the front across my library or in one specific folder?

       

      I really appreciate all your help guys!
