I recently moved all master photos to an external HD. I also have PS5 stored on the same HD. I am trying to open my catalog in LR5. I can see the previews but the original files (raw and adjustments) are not opening. I attached a couple of screenshots. Any idea what the problem is?

"I recently moved all master photos to an external HD."

And the Catalog believes your photos to still remain on the internal MacIntosh HD!

I presume you moved them with Mac Finder. (Usually the wrong thing to do!)

Note all the Question marks [?] against the Folders showing in the folder panel as on the internal HD. The Folders are "Missing" in Lightroom terms.

In the Folder Panel you will need to [Right-Click] on the Top-most folder {Light Room} and select the option to- [Update Folder Location]. Then Navigate in the Finder window that opens- to their 'new' location on the CONNECTED External Drive. It MUST be connected.

Some advice here-
