Start Lightroom Classic and it loads my catalogue file as normal. When I try to add files to the catalogue after I click on Import the following message bubble appears before I get the option to select a source:-
The destination folder “/Volumes/LaCie/Chris's Photographs/2020/2020 02 16 Wye Flood/2020 08 20/RAW” is not available. Using “Pictures” folder instead.
The referred to destination folder is just one of the sub folders withing my master folder 'Chris's Photographs' which contains photgraphs of a specific photoshoot. This folder (even though it is not the one I want to use) is none the less available and I can see the photographs within it that relatwe to that shoot.
It is as if Lightroom has set a default folder for all imports to go in to rather than allowing me to choose as part of the import process.
I have searched for an option to preset a default destination folder without success. Any help would be appreciated. This problem has developed since I imported some photographs which were added to the external disk storage but do not appear in the catalogue.
Have not found a preset for Destination Folder anywhere and following the guidance from Lightroom Queen has not made any difference.
Am still at a loss as to how to get rid of this problem apart from deleting Lightroom Classic and re-installing it.
Thanks for your suggestion.
OS is 10.15.6 guess updated in the last month - certainly before the problem arose
I have resolved this problem now. I found a sub folder in the destination folder which shouldn't have been there. I deleted it and when I now try to import the warning message does not show and I can choose the destination folder I want to use not the one that Lightroom thinks I want to use!
Thanks for all help
