Lightroom Classic Help: Finding Lost Folder & Photos

New Here ,

I am trying to find and restore a Folder with 79 photos that I somehow deleted or removed—I’m not sure what I did— from Lightroom Classic. I think that I have been able to locate them in a folder called “Lightroom—Backups” but the folder has a question mark on it and all the thumbnail photos have exclamation points on them. Is it possible to import the photos from tha backup folder? Will doing so solve my problem? If so, where should I import them to? If I cannot import them, is there any other way to restore them from this backup folder? 


I do have the photos on a memory card but I don’t want to make things worse by downloading them again into Lightroom Classic if they are already there. Suggestions?
