    Lightroom Imports create new root directory after moving all files to new laptop

    doug@dougandpam

      I purchased a new laptop, re-installed Lightroom, and copied all files to the new hard drive (actual pictures, catalogues, etc)

      Now when I import new pictures, the pictures actually go to the correct place, but in the library they show as a new root directory rather than their proper location.  If you try to move the new folder to its proper place, Lightroom tells you there is already a file with that name -- which is true as the file is actually in the correct place.  Just not in the Library list.  If you look in file explorer, everything is fine -- its just the library list that is wrong.  Lightroom snip.JPGHow do I fix this so new imports show correctly in the library?
