This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom CC: Ability to select network drive for original image location

Lightroom CC on Mac OS X won't allow me to select an external hard drive as a storage location for original files.  When I try to select the drive, I get an error message that says: "Oops! You've selected an invalid location.  Make sure you select a valid destination for your photos (such as an external hard drive, USB drive, etc)."

Anyone know how to fix this?

Hi Joshua,

It sounds like you might be choosing a network drive. Lightroom doesn't support using network drives at this time. I'll change your post to an Idea and merge it with another thread so your "vote" will be counted for this feature.
