Re-sync multiple renamed folders

I used folder structure in LRC catolgue (and HDD):

  • year/month/day - name

Now I would like to rename my whole fodler structure to this:

  • year/month_day - name

How can I locate multiple missing folders that are renamed? I can re-sync whole catalogue, but that breaks links on online services. Option "find missing folder" works great, but I cannot imagine doing it on every single folder (I have over 300 renamed folders).

 

Is it even possible?

You should have thought of that and asked your help before you renamed the folders, I'm afraid. Using 'Find Missing Folder' is the only option. Resyncing the whole catalog will not only break links with online services, it will also make you lose all edits and metadata (unless you saved these to the files before you proceeded with the renaming). Do you have a backup copy of the images (and I do mean the images in their original folder structure, not the catalog)?

All my edits are in xmp files so re-sync keeps metadata and edits. Even breaking online services would be ok (I'm not using it since koken and LR/Instagram are dead). But sync in export folders is deal break for me. So it looks like I have to stick with old folder structure.
