Previews disappear when I move photos to SD on Chromebook

I have a relatively large micro SD inserted into my Chromebook for memory expansion.  Lightroom suggests that I move my photos there.  I would love to be able to do that, but when I do, Lightroom doesn't render any previews.  They are all gray in the grid view.  They are fine when I select an individual image, at random of course because I cannot see them. 

If I return the photos to internal memory, then the previews show up fine.  I specifically have the SD card to unload the internal memory.  It would be great to be able to use it...

I have the same issue.  My LR previews take up quite a bit of internal memory, but if I move them to SD, I cannot view them in the grid.  Pictures will show up when I click on the gray squares, but the program is essentially useless if the library is on SD.

 

I recently updated my Android tablet hardware and it handles moving the files to the SD just fine.  The problem is something unique to Chromebook.

No. I'm sure it has something to do with the differences of Android
running on Chromebook, but I haven't heard a peep. There is supposed to be
a big release of Chrome OS soon (91), but I doubt that it addresses this.
