My main photo folders are on an external USB-3 drive.

It seems that for the last 2 months, my photos have been being imported to "My Documents/..." instead of the external drive.

I presume I must have somehow changed the target location, but certainly had not intended to.

I seem to remember this happening way back when I first got LR3, but I didn't know what I was doing back then, so I kind of forgot about it.

This is really scary as my backup copies from one external drive to 2 others, and it was only by glancing at the log of this backup and seeing nothing much copied recently that clued me in.

It would be nice if you could somehow "lock in" some settings.

I guess one just has to be watching all the time.
