Please be more specific.

Are you saying that unedited photos are still there, but the ones with edits are missing?

Or do you mean something else?

Do you have question marks on folders and/or exclamation marks on thumbnails?

Please post a screenshot of the entire Lightroom window in Library.

Do not attach the image, but use the Insert Photos icon in the toolbar.

Hi Per, all the raw files which I've Imported into Lightroom are no longer available for me to edit. I've still got all raw images but I'm worried I've lost all my edited ones. It doesn't help my laptop is super slow and I'm not the greatest with technology.

When this happens, have you selected a folder, or a collection, or a smart collection, or a publish service, or  "All Photographs"?

 

Also, try changing the sort order to Capture Time.

By @defaultxjszcy2o96v4

 

What does "no longer available for me to edit" mean? You have to be more specific.

See my questions above.

If you don't know how to take a screenshot, see https://www.take-a-screenshot.org/

Make sure that the Catalog and Folders panels are visible and expanded, like in the example below.
