I have lost access to all my photos that I have imported on lightroom . They can't be edited in develop
They all just appear with an exclamation mark and the folders with a question mark I kept the files in an external drive . I haven't renamed the drive or moved any folder I have checked if the computer has changed the name of the external hard drive but it didn't
I have also tried to locate my files using the following instructions that I have found on troubleshooting but it didn't help :
To restore the link, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) on the folder and choose Find Missing Folder from the context menu.
Navigate to the file path of the moved folder and click Choose.
If it doesn't work, please explain in detail what you did (step-by-step) and what happened (again in detail) and what error messages you received (word-for-word). The more you can tell us, the better chance there is of fixing the problem. Do not be stingy with words. Do not be stingy with information.
Thanks for your reply. yes its lightroom classic. I have followed the instructions as given in the help guide that you provided. I went to one of the folders with the question mark i right clicked and choose Find Missing Folder... I was able to see the folder I wanted and choose it (btw it was the same name and same location as it used to be) . After choosing it and waiting , I still get the question mark. I didn't reive any eror messages but my folders still apear to have the questionmark and cant edit the photos. What sould i do in that case ?
