Is "hard-link" a translation to English from some other language? If so, what was the original wording in that other language?

Okay, sorry, I never saw this message before, so I don't know what it means.

 

You are telling us the exact word-for-word message, right? Nothing has been changed?

Hard links is what Apple Time Machine creates in its backups. You haven't (re)linked the catalog to images on a Time Machine backup, have you? You should never use files directly in such a backup, but always use Time Machine to restore files if and when needed.

It turns out the directory that images are kept in was being synced to Google Drive. removing the synch has cleared the issue!
