Hello,
I'm hoping someone can offer a quick fix for this problem: I updated from LR3 to LR4. I also upgraded my windows from Win XP to WIN 7 with 64 bit ability. I have backups of everything including my catalog, my photos, etc.. But now, ALL my folders in LR4 are showing on the left side in Library with question marks and I am FORCED to browse to the folder to make Lightroom find the "missing folders" - I'm having to do this FOR ALL folders, some 8,000 photos with about 60 folders. I've only done this so far for about 4 folders and thought to ask this question here. I have three external hard drives that I use and prior to this LR3 to LR4 conversion, my folders and catalog worked perfectly, my folders on G, H, and I drives were there and not missing.
Any ideas?
Thank you,
Debra
