I had previously moved a couple of catalogs and their images onto my NAS in order to temporarily free up some space on my computer. I moved the main folders that contained the catalogs and the images all together. Today, I just needed to access those catalogs again so I moved the folders all back to where they originally were.
Now when I open the catalogs I get asked to upgrade so I do but then all my images show up as missing. And when I try to relink a file I get the following warning (see images below)
I relocate the file and then when press 'Select' it just gives me the following warningNames are identical, I don't understand what's different
Do you have any ideas as to what is causing this? The file names look identical to me. Thank you.
Good catch. I didn't notice that. But the filenames never had spaces in front of them when I lasta worked on the catalog. Any idea what would have caused that across the entire catalog? Like it seems that it's somehow damaged.
I am stumped, I have no idea how spaces could accidentally get added or removed in normal activity. You'd almost have to be trying to add spaces to get it to happen.
I also don't have a good idea how to globally fix this. I suppose there are utility programs out there that can bulk changed the names of the files to have spaces in front of them, but I wonder if there are some drawbacks to doing this that I can't think of at the moment.
I am getting the same error, except my filenames are entirely indentical - no extra spaces anywhere. The only exception possibly is that they include accents in French. Could it be an encoding issue? All file naming was done via Lightroom, on different computers, one Macbook and one PC. Nothing was changed or renamed outside Lightroom.
