Situation:
You have a catalog that contains a folder with sub-folders of photos
that you might have accidentally (or purposely but temporarily) moved away.
Those will have question marks next to them.

Action:
Try to move the entire top folder to a different disk location (across volumes boundary) inside LR catalog.
All the sub-folders and information about files that were edited but are
temporarily not available will be lost, and LR does not issue any
warnings about that or ask what it should do with them.

Expected behavior:
LR would move every referenced file it can find to the new location but leave
the ones that it cannot find in place in the catalog with the old path information intact.
