Hi. I seem to have a problem. 3 of my catalogs (Year 2019, Yr 2020 and Yr 2021) seem to have dissappeared from my LR Classic (on Windows). I turned the computer off one night, and when I started working the following morning, they were gone. I can't seem to be able to find them. All the original files as well as the edited ones were gone.

Does anyone have an anser/solution to this?

Thanks in advance

And, to verify, or clarify, what exact Lightroom program? And what version?

 

Separation of above reply's very much on purpose.

Use your operating system's search feature to search all disks for all files whose name ends with .LRCAT (might be lower case). And of course, you do have backups of these catalog files, don't you?
