How do I consolidate folders with same name?

Post by davidg » 06 Mar 21 17:33

In the Folders tab, PS lists multiple instances of the same local E: drive. The folders under E: are not identical, I guess because I added them from different physical drives over the years. Even folders of same name may contain different images.

I want to consolidate all subfolders and their catalogued images into one E: drive item. How can I do this? If I try dragging a folder to a different 'E:' in PS folders tab, it fails with message "The destination folder is the same as the source folder.".

Try a right click on the E drive that you no longer need. Then choose “Map to the correct physical folder” and point to the E drive

That just gives me 'Mapped 0 folders' and nothing changes.

If the same PSU folders contain different images, what is the situation in the physical folder - what shows in Explorer?
Two of the E drives show different id codes in your image. Are they different drives that have similar folders?

Since PSU doesn't import the images but works with them in their original location, if you select the top level and initiate a verify missing folders and files, does that clear up the discrepancy?
