Lightroom CC 2015.3: Won't import subfolders

Can't import nested folders of pictures. If I have pictures in subfolders they will not import, I have to move them into the root folder before they will import. Reported this to support, but he tried to tell me this was normal.

Something sounds wrong there... are you getting an error message? Or are the photos not showing up in the Import dialog?

Hi,
They actually can be seen and they get enumerated, but upon clicking the 'import' button none of the files in the sub-folders come.

For example I have a folder "2015" that has about 40GB in the root and then there are a bunch of nested folders with another 80GB and those never get imported.

This worked fine until the did the revert back to the 'old' import menu in 2015.3v

Did you get this resolved? I just updated my Lightroom to 2015.4 and now I can't import nested folders.
