Lightroom 4 and 3. When I use the Library find missing photos Lightroom correctly displays the 7 pictures missing on my hard disc.
When I use the function synchronize folder it shows 60 pictures missing . The seven which are really missing plus 53 other which are perfectly usable and on the hard disk at the right place (displays if you ask to show in Explorer).
Potentially very dangerous if one would elect remove missing pictures from catalog when synchronizing a folder.
Checking on various libraries I have the same result : missing photos function is reliable ; synchronize folder is totally unreliable, you have to carefully check each result for accuracy and never activate the import or remove function before checking accuracy of result. If required I can provide screen shots.
