This is actually an enhancement request that I am posting here since I could not find any option in the web site for enhancement requests.

In Lightroom, I would like to have a way to Export or Publish a Lightroom folder with subfolders to a hard drive so the export or publishing keeps the same folder structure including folder and subfolder names. My Idea is to be able to create a JPG copy of all my edited raw files in another disk outside of Lightroom. If I move pictures around, or change file names, or do additional editing in any picture, I would like that to be reflected on the external copy. Theoretically, I should be able to publish my top directory and all my subdirectories would automatically be included and replicated on the external hard drive.

Lightroom currently have a way to publish to a hard drive but this is a flat (one level) publishing feature, for the moment.

I would like to do a similar thing: export my folder structure to an external drive, with my master files in it (intact, date of publication, etc.), Also including any metadata added later like tags and ratings (similar to an app called ApertureExporter for Apple Aperture users).

Why? I want to move away from Lightroom, adopt a simpler folder file structure. Currently the back end folders in Lightroom are too granular yyyy> mm> DD etc.

Thanks in advance for any insights.

That plugin is updated periodically. Late last year (17th October 2020) support for LrC 10 was added. According to that warning message, the plugin you are using does not have that support.

 

So you will need to obtain again (with a new donation) - and then install - a more up-to-date version of this plugin.
