    I copied my lightroom library that is store on a external drive to another portable USB 3 drive. They are located in a folder that is broken down into several sub folders. I dragged the main folder and drop the files onto the portable drive then navigated to my home folder picture where I copied the lightroom folder. When I open up library i can see the photos but I still get the exclmation point saying it can't find the photos. Is there a quick easy way for it locate the photos?

    Right click on the folder in the navigator pane on the left and select Find Folder (or something similar, not sure exact verbiage)

    Show in finder is the phrase @NeGRit0 was looking for.

    Just click "Find Missing Folder..." and navigate to where the folder now resides.

    Well I was guessing as my iMacs upstairs! But yes that looks spot on.
