I have my LR catalog on the main OS SSD of my (MacOS) computer, my (organized) photolibrary is on an external usb-c drive. This drive got corrupted and I was able to restore it via rescue software, which copied all of it on a brandnew external SSD (same folder name, but another disc name).
When I now open my LR catalog in the 'Library' tab, I see the old photolibrary location below the 'Folders' in the left pane, but all folders have a question mark next to it (because the original library disc has gone).
So I decided to maka a backup of my LR catalog in its last working state and tried to add the new photolibrary folder with the '+' sign in 'Folders', but this action just asks to re-import all photos of the photolibrary in this folder (located on the new drive)...
Is there a solution to 'couple' my existing LR catalog to this new disc / photolibraray folder without having to import everything and loose all actions, keywords, ... in added in my LR catalog?
