Could easily be a Permissions issue with the new MBP not having "rights' to your external drive.  Two things to check:1. Use cmd-i on the external drive (or Get Info) and check the bottom area of permissions to see you have read write. 2. In System Preferences - Security and Privacy - either Full Disk Access or Folders and Files..... check Lightroom is there or add it if it is not.

Hi there,

 

Sorry that you're getting an error message " the file could not be found" in Lightroom Classic while editing images in the Develop module.

 

Which version of Lightroom are you using and what is your computer's OS? It might be possible that the external HD is corrupt and the images are not accessible. 

 

Please checkout the suggestions offered in this discussion https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic/the-file-could-not-be-found/td-p/9668984?page=1 and let us know if that helps.

 

Thanks,

Akash
