I am currently running latest version of Caralina and LR Classic. I purchased a new SSD to store my images. I have a catalog of 115K of images. I moved the file structure from original hdd to new ssd. My photo structure is:
My Photos > Landscape
My Photos > People
My Photots > Travel
Under each of these I have locations I took, like Tetons and all Tetons images are under Tetons, for example. However, when I looked at my SSD, it put every image under root folder MY Photos and did not copy the sub folder and then images. It took each sub folder and placed it under My Photos and now all folders are under my photos. I believe 3 years ago when I did this the sub folders were added to destination and the all folders or images coppied. Did I do something wrong, is this a bug, or feature request?
Looks like you moved thee catalog, just the catalog. The catalog is a database file. This database keeps track of where the photos are stored, what edits you have accomplished, what collections exists, etc. This database, this catalog, does not contain the actual photos.
The parent folder that the catalog is in, will contain the catalog, and some preview folders. It may or may not contain any photos or folders with photos, depending on where you located the photos.
