Converting PSD files to tifs to enable importing into LR; files not showing in original folder

I've been updating my LR catalog, and noticed that LR wouldn't import my old PSD files, so I converted them to tifs in PS, saved them in the original image folder, but the tifs aren't showing up in the original folder. I try again, and get the 'file exists in folder, do you want to replace", and still no tifs are showing up in the folder.

Running LR Classic (12.1) on a new Studio M1 Mac. PS v. 24.1.0.

Regarding your PSD files - you need to have 'Maximise Compatibility' enabled in Photoshop preferences/settings.

Yes, I understand that. The issue is the converted and saved PSD to Tiff files are not showing up in the original image folder. When I try it again, I get a message that the file (tif) exists in that folder, do I want to replace. Just not showing up in finder…

If the folder is in Lightroom, what can you see? Again if it is and you can right click on a file and do 'Show in Finder, does it match.

NOW everything is working as it should!  I have no explanation for this - all I have done since having the fail this morning is to make another clone of my Images Disk so I'd have an additional copy; I was then going to erase and repopulate the original Images Disk, but before I did that I tried the sequence again, and voila, it is working!
