Lightroom 5 garbles renamed files
I renamed a few thousand files in Lightroom 5.3 on Mac OS. The result was very strange. Many files were renamed on the external HD, where they were stored, but NOT in the Lightroom catalogue. The LR catalogue thumbnails bear the old names and obviously the link between them and the originals has been broken. Provided the renaming action is irreversible, now I cannot relink these thumbnails to their original files except by clicking individually on each and everyone of them and manually identifying which files hey belong to - an extremely tedious task.
Has anyone experienced anything like this?
Thanks for any info.
