I was away for the summer, and moved my files to an external firewire drive. I would start Lightroom by double-clicking on the catalog. Everything worked fine.
When I returned home, I copied the catalog, previews, and lightroom database back to my computer.
I set the preferences to start up from these copied files. No matter what preview I click on, I am told that the Files are offline or missing.
When I find the files in the Finder, they can't be found, but the message box shows the path, which is to the Firewire drive.
Is there a way of quickly converting the file locations in the catalog to the new location I want?
