Have you ever lost files and folders in your Lightroom catalogue and been frustrated by the question marks and exclamation points whenever you want to edit or export images? If you said yes, this video is for you!

In this week's Editing Toolbox, I'm going to go through the most common reasons Lightroom can't access files and folders. I'll show you how to locate and reconnect them so you don't lose all the editing work you've done and I'll also go through some best practices so you can avoid this happening again in the future.
