Export photos without the originals

Hi,

I apparently made a really annoying move and deleted 550 pictures of mine. I still have them on Lighroom Classic CC but obviously, I haven't made the dynamic previews yet on these ones.
The quality isn't the same because I just have the previews but I wanted to know if there still was a way to export these photos ? When I try to do so, it just doesn't work.

Thank you all !

Romain

Extracting JPGs from the Previews is the best you will ever achieve. EXTRACT JPGs FROM PREVIEWS Restoring files deleted can sometimes be recovered by running 'recover' software- IF the data on hard-drives has not been over-written! https://www.ccleaner.com/recuva

In your MACOS, look in the Deleted bin, show all files, can you undelete them, or are they completely gone?

Unfortunately they're really gone. I had a backup file and I have no clue of the operation I did but it's deleted and I canno't restore it 😞

Please understand that recovering the JPGs from the previews gives you low resolution JPG (not Raw) versions of your high-resolution original photos. Make backups from now on, no excuses.
