Lightroom 5 help to restore a catalog

Copied

I have a back up copy of a catalog on a hard drive. When I open up the catalog at the top first line under catalog it says there are 6600 photos, however when I scrol down under folders for that drive all the folders have question marks because non of the photo's can be found.  I tried importing but can't find them on the hard drive.

 

I can see the photos though in Windows explorer on the drive.  Is there any way to get an actual person to help me recover the files?

 

Thanks

Do NOT import! Fix the question mark icons via these instructions: www.computer-darkroom.com/lr2_find_folder/find-folder.htm

 

DO NOT IMPORT. This is so important I am going to say it three more times.
