I want to figure out a way to tell Photos that all original source files are in exactly the same place as before but on a different volume. (The equivalent of changing all their paths' reference to
My old external hard drive failed, I was able to recover the files from somewhere else, and I had to restore the files to a differently-named external hard drive.
Now that I'm trying to share, or create picture with, pictures from my library, a dialog comes up saying:
The volume for “IMG_[XXXX].JPG” cannot be found. Connect the disk or mount the server volume needed, then try again.
I select "Apply to All," every time that dialog comes up, I point it to the proper source file and it finds it... but then it asks me for a reference to a picture in another folder.
All the photos are in exactly the same place relative to each other, it's just a different volume. I thought Photos would be smart enough to at least try to create relative paths (a relatively simple thing to do) and attempt to find other missing source files through those guessed relative paths, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Note that I did not copy the items to the Photos library, whose location hasn't changed. That means that I need to point Photos towards the new location of the original pictures, not to the library files directory.
Is there a manual way to just change the volume of the source files for all the pictures in my library?
