I recently had to reinstall my OS, I reinstalled LR & PS.

Now when I export to PS to edit & then save, a new folder is created in LR when the image comes back in, it does not go into the orignal folder. This appears only in LR as when I look in finder the file is in the original folder.

 

1. original folder, 2. New fodler created.

 

Help!

Does this happen with every round-trip to Photoshop?

Have you made any changes in the External Editing tab of Lightroom Preferences?

Sometimes it been reported here that organsing your Folder structure at an OS level before re-installing has been useful.

If you right click on the offending folder, March, and select Shiw Parent Folder, what shows up?

First, make sure you have a backup of your catalog.

 

If you right click on that offending March folder and select Sync, what happens?

Might be asked to merge.

For sure- Known as the "Capitalization Problem"

See a correct answer at-

https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic/catalog-same-photos-same-location-but-shown-twice/m...

 

(Note: You must carry out the suggested fix procedure in full to correct the problem.  Simply trying to move photos or folders in the Lr Folder panel does NOT work. It might appear fixed but will return.)

 

And here the same answer from Jim Wilde-
