Hi...  I erroneously deleted my dng files before I exported my photos to my drive and now they are not found... is there a way to export them in any way?

Deleted images should be found in the trash on your computer. You can restore them from the trash, and that will return them to the folder where they were located. However, it will be necessary for you to import them into Lghtroom again and perform all of the editing because when you delete them from Lightroom there is no longer a record of any of the work in the catalog. It will be necessary for you to do all the work again. Of course, if you have emptied the trash then the DNG files will be gone and there will be nothing for you to recover.

See my reply in your other post, but if ALL original files are no longer available anywhere (including Trash and backups) then you can only create smaller JPGs by using a plugin to 'export' the previews.

Hopefully, you can find them using Time Machine IF you had that setup and the drive with the DNG's was setup for it. Or you had a backup. Otherwise, you're SOL.
