    I don't think this has anything to do with migration, this is how catalogs normally work. Not sure why or what triggers it, but they'll start a re-scan every once in a while.

    OK, that would explain it. Is there any way to know whether the migration is complete or not?

    I don't know. I haven't tried it myself.

    I've waiting on those progress circles to finish for five days now. Two albums are still showing unfinished with one disappearing only to return part filled.

    They seem to be around 99% completed... when I look in the albums, some images still show the LR

    Most likely there are files at those locations still being converted that the program is having trouble with. Take a look at the log file which can be opened through the Help menu and see if it is identifying any image files with error codes. Also take a look at ~/Library/Application Support/ON1/CorruptFiles.log. If you see any files in either of the log files pull them out of the folders and see if that allows the process to finish.

    Thank you for the prompt response, in what way do I drag those files out? Is it right click and delete?

    Here’s what I see...

    I would go to the Finder and drag them to a different folder outside of your catalogs. Once things are working properly then you can take a look at them to see if you can find out why they caused problems in the first place. It could be something that needs to be reported to support for the engineers to look at or it could be the files are just corrupt in some fashion.

    The corrupt files log isn't showing anything. You'll have to look through the ON1 Photo RAW Log.txt file yourself, it's probably quite long. Start at the bottom and work up to see the most recent entries first. It's inside the ON1 Photo RAW 2019 folder I see in your screen shot.

    This is what I see..

     I’ve no idea what to do next.

    if I close ON1, and restart, will that help?

    It looks to me like your Lr library contains references to image files that do not exist or have been moved and the library wasn't updated. Have you looked for those files yourself? Are those images in the folders (2016-04-30 & 2016-01-09 among others) where they are being looked for?

    Have you seen this: https://on1help.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360029970211-The-Official-ON1-Guide-to-Leaving-Adobe-Lightroom It tells you how to prepare the Library before exporting.

    I seem to have fixed it.

    the solution was to go through the folder and find all the LR marked images and delete them. I have B&W images of these RAW files. So once they were in the trash, ON1 stopped looking for the images and finished the migration.

    Did you notice if they were the same files the log file said it couldn't find?

    Glad you got it fixed.

    Any chance the B/W images were Greyscale? On1 doesn't support those.

    The B&W images were just normal colour images edited in Nik Software Silver Efex... it was the LR RAW images that ON1 couldn’t find in the catalogue Ricky did notice that the migration has made two 2015 albums that weren’t in LR... odd. I’m upgrading to 2020 tomorrow now that it seems to have finished the migration.

    Brian, I really couldn’t fathom that file log so I can’t answer that...
