Question: My Photos Library is missing, how can I find where it was?

Long story short. My Photos app is missing the "Photos Library.photoslibrary" file. How do I find out where it was last so I can recover it?


Long version: I have several shared folders, I believe I moved the folder originally to a shared folder and have since removed it thinking it was a duplicate. If I could find where "Photos" thought it was I could recover it.


I thought that it would be in the "./Library/Containers/com.apple.Photos/Data/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Photo s.plist" file, but it doesn't seem to have the location of the library.


Cheers!

Your Photo library is located anyplace you want it to be - by default it is in your Pictures folder


And it can not be successfully used in a shared folder - to work correctly it mush be in a local folder with only one user
