Problem finding original photos and moving them from external drive to locally

Hi

I recently migrated my catalog from Lightroom Classic to the cloud based Lightroom CC.

Now it appears that some files are missing and I can't find a way to tell LCC where to look for them. Does anyone have a solution to this?

Also, when I launch LCC it say's "Couldn't move certain photos" because the hard drive is offline. Then when I connect the hard drive it starts moving the original photos (~3500 photos) to Machintosh HD. This process takes forever and I don't now how to fix it. It is very frustrating.

There was some problem with the app. I tried to reinstall the app and it worked. Don't want it to happen again though. But maybe that is only if I change the location of the .lrcat

Hi @albertjonsson 

Since your question is about missing images in LR CC, I have moved this from the Photoshop forum where you posted.

If you are migrating from LRC to LR, your images are being uploaded to the cloud not only taking forever but using up all of your bandwidth as well. A better way is to sync your images From LR to LRC - go the other way. If you want to share your images from LRC to LR, sync your collections.
