This dialog is called from the Catalog menu.
If your files get moved, renamed, or deleted after you catalog them, it's possible for Portfolio to lose track of them. With the Find Missing Originals command, you can easily locate any such "lost" files and then either re-link them to Portfolio - or strip them out of your catalog.
Portfolio searches for missing files on mounted volumes only. If a volume containing cataloged item source files is not mounted, Portfolio will not report on those files.
Portfolio compares each item's path name as stored in the catalog against all mounted volumes and disks to see if the source file can be found at that location. The results are reported in the Missing Files dialog. If Missing Files were located, they are displayed in this dialog:
You have the option to update each record (by locating the original) or deleting it. When done click OK to dismiss the dialog.
