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

etc. 

 

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?

 

Thanks,

Vis

I do not understand the word "it" in your sentence above. All actions were performed by you, were they not? What does "it" refer to?

 

I also do not understand if you are asking for help in fixing this, or asking for an understanding of what happened, or something else?

Are you viewing the SSD directly or are you viewing the folders panel in Lightroom Classic?
