Hi there,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Lightroom Classic. To start from the beginning, you may try creating a new Catalog. Take a look at the following link for more information: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/help/create-catalogs.html

 

Let us know if that helps.

 

Regards,

Tarun

The question marks on your folders are easily fixed, see http://www.computer-darkroom.com/lr2_find_folder/find-folder.htm I would think fixing the problem is better than starting over.

 

I also highly recommend you find some introductory videos on YouTube about Lightroom Classic, and/or read the free beginners e-book at lightroomqueen.com.

 

Also, please note, your software is called Lightroom Classic, not Lightroom (which is an entirely different software)

Hi
This is my screen. I have clicked on the ? mark, gone to Find Missing Folder. I click on the missing folder when I find it but nothing happens in LrC.
Does that help you to sort my problem out?
Thanks in anticipation Dennis

Hi
Should I be able to have more than one catalogue. If so I could start again in a new one.

Starting a new catalog causes you to lose all of your edits, and all of your user-supplied metadata like keywords and collections.
