I deleted some files from my hard drive.  How can I remove them from the Photoshop Elements catalog?  It insists on trying to find them and refuses to let me import a replacement because it says the file is already there!

Select the files in the Organizer and press the delete button.  In future, all file management (move and delete) should be performed in the Organizer.  Otherwise the program will not know what happened to your files and will go through the missing files process.

Do a search for missing files.

The resulting list is displayed in a new dialog. On top of this list, you have an icon (3 horizontal bars) which opens a drop-down menu. The options are 'select all' and' delete all'.

I was hoping to delete the entire folder, since all its files are displayed with a "?".  The icon next to the folder name is faint.

Once you delete all the files from the folder in the catalog, the folder should not appear in the folder list.  Is that what you are trying to accomplish?
