Hi All... newbie to the Adobe Support community. And seeking a solution to a frustrating problem that has cropped up. I've used LR for over 20 years. While not an "expert" I do figure I have a good grasp of things over the various versions.
I have a master "images" library, that is organized by YYYY with MM subfolders only.
My Importing workflow is direct for a source folder and I get LR to "copy" files into destination folders.
Files are auto-renamed (YYYY_MM_DD_Sequence) and into auto-generated destination, folders are organized - BY DATE with date format YYYY/MM. I only have my master folder selected, and LR finds the correct year and creates the new month (shows the + symbol on the folder and how many photos will be imported) it does this flawlessly as it should ....HOWEVER,
Now, after import, it copies the images into the correct folder structure on my external drive, but displays the organized folder structure in LR (on the left window menu) a duplicate year, and month folder that is "outside" of my main "images" master library. It is ONLY inside LR I see this. The actual files have been copied into their new folders correctly.
If I import new images later during the same month, again... it imports/renames/copies into the correct month as expected on the external, but when in LR the folder structure shows another added YYYY -> MM folder has been added. So I'll have two YYYY folders each containing the same MM with a different amount of photos in each, but everything looks perfect on the external HD. These extra "folders" if you will, are not showing inside my main "Images" library folder as I see in the left window menu.
Any ideas people?
