I am assisting a friend who's old Mac Mini died and is being replaced with a new one. His LR catalog contains 50,000 photos. I tried loading his last .lrcat file, seemingly with success, only to find 31000 missing, with former locations the files aren't in and don't exist. I can load all the photos (dfrom his secondary drive) in a new catalog, but then the editing and collections are missing. Any solution to this - can the new and old cat. files be merged? Really would like to help him not have to go thru years of work 

 

Please?

You don't need to merge anything. What you need to do is 'reconnect' the missing folders:
