Due to space issues, I initially imported photos while still on a SD card.
After getting rid of all the unwanted shots, I then shut down Lightroom and moved my photos from the SD card onto my hard drive and removed the SD card.
I am now stuck in some kind of Lightroom purgatory where my original imported folder disappeared completely (since the drive was unmapped) and when I try to re-import to a new folder, all the photos are marked as duplicates / disabled and LightRoom will not let me force a re-import.
I've been stuck with this for a while. I don't see any clear way to force LightRoom to let me import. it just keeps insisting it won't let me re-import because LightRoom knows best! :)
What's the best way to deal with this now? Is it possible to find the disconnected folder and re-map its source?
but I can't find the folder that was on a separate drive, and thus not on my list now.
