My hard drive was getting gummed up with downloading photos for Mylio(an app for sharing photos across many different devices). I moved a large file to my 3TB hard drive. Got help from mylio to work their software better and then lost Lr.

With my Lr i have years 2009, 2010 has disappeared but images are findable, 2011,2012,2013 and 2014 have images but they each have the "!" in the upper right hand corner. Yes, I have clicked on the "!" and tried to reconnect them that way and no success. I have gotten a box that I believe it says "cancel or merge".

When clicking on merge the image disappears.

I can go to finder to finder with the img designation but cannot get anything to happen. Believe the road is washed out so to speak.

Worried about losing them all.

Hi Jeffery,

Tried that.

So watched video.

Right clicked on the 2014 folder.

Pulled up this window.

What command should I use? Guessing Synchronize folder.

Your time is appreciated,
Fern
