Always leave a file or two behind
« on: June 20, 2013, 11:27:20 PM »

Everytime..(almost) I move files to different folders, It just leaves a couple images behind. Usually the larger files.

 WTF(ile)?

Anyone else experience this? Any remedy?

Yep, I've had this with lightroom 5. I've reported it as a bug. I move a folder using LR5 from one physical drive to another. I sometimes get error messages saying the files can'rt be moved, however, they are moved and the source directory is left empty. Occasionally though, a file is left behind.

Same here.  Only happens on rare occasions, and started with LR4.x.  The error message itself is an indication, I think, that it isn't something I'm doing or not doing - though I always considered it as something "funny" about the files that were skipped.   The fact that a second whack at moving the "left behinds" works fine seems to indicate a hiccup in the program.  W7 machine.

When posting about such problems, it's best to include more information. For instance, what operating system and version? Anything special about either drive - eg is it a Drobo or NAS?

Yes, I've seen this behaviour as well.  Win 7, LR 4.  Have not tried with LR 5.

The scenario that I see this - in all versions since 1 - is when I have a set of images selected in a folder and right-click another folder to "create a new folder inside of ..." and have the "
  • Include selected photos" checked. Most of the time it will leave the last selected photo in the source folder. I just drag it to the new folder to finish it up.


Windows 7 64bit, LR12345, local sata drive.
