I backed up my hard drive to another hard drive. I didn't realize it didn't complete the task. I opened Lightroom and selected a new Catalog ( which I never really understand) Then it opened, but only displayed images from up to a year ago. Every image says File Not Found.
Now I can't see the images on either hard drive!!!

So do you now have the original camera files on ANY drive? Looking in Finder.
Or did you delete files after the failed Backup?
You need to establish, with Finder, where your files are located in your drive system. Then next find a catalog that references all the files you believe you had imported, and Re-link the 'Missing' folders and files.
You screen-clip (of the Develop module) does not tell us much other than the files are 'Missing'. (and the catalog cannot build previews to show).
