Default Problem Exporting to Desktop with LR

My desktop computer is on the blink so I loaded LR 4.1 onto my laptop, then upgraded to 4.4.

Previously I had been able to export to desktop simply by naming a folder in the export menu. Now the photos don't export and I have to go looking for them in the HD and drag them to the desktop. I'm doing everything I used to do and don't know why it isn't working.

I just tried one and it worked using LR4.4 and Windows 8 64-bit.

Hi Doug
what computer and OS ?
With Mac, when you choose export one can set the export "place" including creating folder and sub folders… even in LR 5 ; ) (beta)

Windows. My instructions are to choose hard drive, then the folder. I do and it doesn't.

Doug,
If I'm understanding correctly, you are not looking for your lightroom catalog, but rather your actual photos?

If yes, when you import your images, on the import page, on the bottom left, you can indicate a destination folder and set the disk and the folder there. Just click on the DESTINATION dropdown and choose your preferred place for your photos there. Lightroom will create sub-folders by date in it, by year and actual date. Anything raws or .tif etc., you are looking for will be found there.

This will not move your older images already sent somewhere else. If you move them to your new folder then you will have to let Lightroom know where you have moved them otherwise it will say they are offline.
Hope this was the help you were actually looking for.

If it was actually to export these to a new folder, the way you are doing it is correct. If this is the problem, then your Lightroom copy may have become corrupt and a re-install may be in order, but before doing that I would contact Adobe as they would know what to do.

Hope this is helpful

Thanks, Maggie. I uninstalled and reinstalled. No good.

I never had this problem on my desktop.
