I moved all of my photos to OneDrive on a new drive (off C drive). Now, when I import photos to a new LRC catalog, it is moving all of the actual files to that folder. I don't want to duplicate all of my pictures, I just want them to stay where they are. I can't find a settings in LRC to fix that? Do I have to start over, or can I just delete all of those photos. I already have them on the drive and I did not need to repeat it.

When you Import, you have a choice of COPY, MOVE, ADD. if you don't want LrC to place your photos in some other folder, select ADD, which leaves the photos where they are.

Many options in LrC, appear as they were last set. So, in  Import, if you selected Copy last time you imported, then Copy will show up. (hmm, Copy a poor examp,e, as right out if the box, that is default, but you get the idea)

 

Another such setting that could be affecting you, in Import, is Destination, that will show up as where you previously Imported to,.

Thank you, but I don't know how to change that. Where do I set that? I think the issue is my back up location. So, I deleted LIghtroom from Onedrive, and It is closed on my PC. The Lightroom folder just shows back up after 1 min.
