Deleting photos via the Organiser Feb 3, 2022 10:02:03 GMT

I have 44,400 photos in my Catalogue, all jpegs, the majority of them stored on an external drive. Every one is catalogued via the Organiser. I am looking at each individual photo and deciding whether to keep or delete it. Apart from those in 2021 the others are in year folders on the external drive. I'm using the My Folders column to the left of the Organiser to find the photo by date order within the year's folder. It worked well on the C:Drive but now that I'm working on the external drive and decide to delete a photo I generally find (not every time) that the organiser goes back to the last photo of the year so I have to scroll back to find where I was up to. When it works well and just goes back to the previous photo I've done precisely the same actions as when it doesn't. I can't fathom why this is the case.
My second associated problem is: Occasionally I decide a photo needs editing so do that in the Editor, saving after editing and specifying that the saved version should replace the earlier version. I go back to the Organiser and find that the original version is still visible. I'd assumed it was just a computer delay due to the external drive but all edited files are visible in a duplicate year folder ie I have two 2019 folders according to My Folders. I can't move these edited photos back into the correct folder (where the original version is still visible). The second 'folder' seems to be a phantom one as it isn't visible through File Explorer. I suppose it doesn't really matter but I do like everything to be ordered, hence using the Organiser since 2003 when I first purchased it.
Any advice or explanation welcomed.
