Lightroom: Why is renaming photos not working as expected?

When I re name my photos I then back up, when I re launch lightroom my photos are missing. When I look for them they have been renamed on my external hard drive but it hasn't changed in lightroom??

Are you changing the names of the files using Lightroom or the OS? If the later, Lightroom has no knowledge of file name or file location changes made in the OS after the files are imported.

You should always make file naming changes and moving files around using Lightroom.
