Moving files sometimes doesn't work

I import my files from my camera's always to the same location. Then I edit them and when they are ready I move them fron that location to a location that suited for them. So al bird files go to the bird file location.

 

About 50% of the time it goes alright but in the other 50% of the time lightroom moves the files to the right location on the harddisk but tells that it was not possible and according Lightroom the files weren't moved at all but gives a location error.

 

I know how to correct it but it is annoying as hell and takes alot of time to correct it. Am I the only one who has this problem or an more people have this?

I never see that Adobe mentioned this problem let alone they solved it.

I have an other question. Is there a way in Lightroom to check the health of the libary so you can files other misplaced or mismoved files.

Hope that somebody can give me a satisfying answer to solve this. Regards Han

Are you using Windows 10 or 11? Where are the files starting and where are you moving them to? External disk, server, internal drive, etc? Can you post a screenshot of the errors? Have you tried turing off your security software to see if that is the cause?

Better solution ... avoid the problem entirely. Don't import to one location and then move them to a 2nd location. Import the photos to the final location directly. Then you don't have the move step, and so it can't go wrong.

Please don't double post the same issue. MODERATOR can you merge this with https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic-discussions/massive-errors-in-lightroom-classic-v11...

 

@j.a.w.d61026027Please consider my answer in your other thread.

I came here for the same issue; encountered with a Synology NAS connected folder. However, I noticed that I have the same error message when moving the file in the Windows explorer between some of the folders, but not with others. In my case, it seems to be a Windows or NAS issue rather than a Lightroom issue.

@dj_paige your suggestion does not help; my flow is to import all, tag with Lightroom, then move according to tags

Just so I can understand, why is there a need to move according to tags? Why not just tag only, without moving? (and then use the Lightroom Classic tools to find photos with specific tags)
