Finding missing folders

If a folder name contains a question mark (see Figure 3-14) it means the folder and its contents cannot be located by Lightroom. To process these photos, you will first need to relink the folder.

Control+Click or right-click on the folder name

Choose Find Missing Folder from the contextual menu. Navigate through the dialog boxes to find the missing folder and click Return or Enter to finish. Lightroom will update the links in its database.

Update Folder Location: this command allows you to point Lightroom to a different source folder on a hard disk, whether or not Lightroom thinks a folder is "missing". This is useful if you've copied or moved files and need Lightroom to use the new location, even though the existing catalog links are not broken.
