Lightroom does not have folders, but you can create albums. You can also create album sets to organize your albums.

Lightroom uploads all of your images to a cloud. It does not have folders. If you upload everything at one time they will be organized by date only (based on metadata capture date). If you need better organization, you need to create albums and import one folder at a time in to the album.

If you want to keep your pictures on your computer in folders, you should use Lightroom Classic not Lightroom.

I'm so worried that one day Light room will go away and I will have to start all over again...again

very frustrated
