Oh my - so many articles that are near my question without an actual answer - so, here it goes. My library is on an external RAID 1 housing (my catalog is on my internal SSD but that doesn't matter here). The raid controller failed and the data was ruined. Thankfully, I had a second backup location and have now purchased a new RAID 1 enclosure with all new drives (the old units were old anyway) and have copied my 67K files in all their folders to the new RAID enclosure in the original structure. It was an EXACT copy of the working library drive. HOW do I point the LRCC catalog to this new location? Can I do it all at once without finding endless numbers of random images, pointing to them, and finding nearby photos? Many thanks for your assistance.
Thank you for the response. This is Classic and the drive shows in Lightroom as I ‘found’ a few photos to test things out How do I relink? This sounds exactly like what needs to happen but heck if I can find the procedure. Cheers!
If you have the NAS folder present and able in Lightroom, with the identical folder structure, and you are getting the "missing image" icon in the Grid View thumbnail, that you can click on that and it should find all "missing" image files in one hit.
