Synchronize Folder doesn't recognize HEIC files that need to be imported
Win10 / Lr Classic CC 8.0
When using Synchronize Folder, Lr incorrectly reports HEIC files as missing.
To reproduce -
- In Lr, create a folder.
- In Windows Explorer, copy a jpg and an HEIC file into the folder.
- In Lr, right-click the folder and click Synchronize Folder. The Synchronize dialog box will show 1 new photo to import, but will import both files. This is the previously reported issue linked above.
- After the import completes, right-click the folder and click Synchronize Folder again. Remove missing photos count is 1. Show Missing Photos shows the newly imported HEIC image, but the HEIC image is not missing - it's physically located in the folder, there is no missing file indicator (!), and the Develop tools still work fine.
