After much time on chat, phone and forum I still have issues with LR importing images into the wrong folder. It works fine with CR2 files, but anything from DNG files or Tiffs and jpegs created from them get moved into a folder by the modification date (which must be an auto metadata update since i have not touched these files) Thousands of files end up in one wrongly dated folder. The files are not corrupt as they import correctly for other people( I sent them to others to try) The folders are not corrupt, as I changed them out. This happens on two different machines running the same version 8.4.1 on Macs running 10.14.6. I have tried over and over to recreate the catalog and reimport these, but the same result every time. I have used LR for many years and am doing things the same as always (and it works fine with other files). I'm importing files from a local drive(that were shot in 2013 and converted to DNG in 2016) These files have worked flawlessly for years. I select the source, select Move or Copy(the result is the same either way) and organize by subfolder by date(and I select the date format). The files are to be moved or copied to another folder on the drive(or elsewhere, it doesn't make any difference in my experiments) and organized by date. I end up with an archive that is Ok for the CR2files and some others, but with every one of my DNGs in a single folder relating to the modification date in the file. Lightroom can also read the correct date of capture as it's clearly visible in the software. It can read the correct dates, it just doesn't use them. Strangely, although almost all of the mishandled files are DNGs, there are also a few others included. I saw a scan from a piece of film (a tiff) I scanned in 2013 and have not modified since that got dropped into that folder as well. Please help. This is ruining my archive!
