    if the original live folder path moved the only solution is to re-add the folder itself. I suppose the folder in the screenshot is an external SSD and the drive is already plugged and you can navigate it via Finder (?).

    Yes the original live folder change path because the new OS HDD name was changed. But i cant remeber the previous name. Can i see the lost original path of the folder "SSD Inspirationen" anywhere? In Database Code maybee? Then i could rename it.

    I need it to rebuild because there are 30k pictures tagged.

    Unfortunately, because of how MacOS sandbox work if the path is renamed is no longer possible to re-link it because is saw as a different node on the FS.

    I'm afraid re-adding the path is the only solution.
