    Hello all - I could really use some help here please! I've just spent all morning processing nearly 400 photos. When I went to export them, I noticed I'd named the folder incorrectly (date/month/year, instead of year/month/date). Being a stickler for such things, I renamed the folder containing the RAW files before exporting.

    Net result was that I got a message telling me the export had failed as the folder was missing. I immediately renamed the folder back to its original name, but got the same result upon re-attempting the export. I've just tried rebooting Lightroom but when I mouse-over the thumbnails, I get a 'Photo missing' popup message.

    So can I rectify this? Really don't fancy spending another five hours doing them all again...

    Sorry - panic over... I had to change the name of the folder the RAW folder was in too, if that makes any sense. That is, I have a parent folder called (for instance) 12-02-28-unclebob. In this folder I have three more folders with the same name and the suffix, -RAW, -JPEGS and -FTP. It was the parent folder which needed renamed.

    Have you moved the files by any chance? This normally happens to me.
    Or if you've changed the name of the folder, it could of not recognised the folder. Are your pictures still physically on your hard drive?
