Missing editing steps for my picture

I have the problem that I have deleted pictures from my external memory card and moved them to another hard disk. Unfortunately, I can no longer edit my images because the file no longer exists. However, I still have the image on my new hard disk. How can I now copy the protocol, which is highlighted in gray, from my editing steps in order to apply it to the image on the new hard drive? Are my editing steps completely lost? I can still see exactly what I did in the log, but unfortunately I can't see how I applied masks to the image, for example. That would only work if you create a preset, right? I tried that too, but since the images are no longer on the old hard disk, I can no longer create a preset. How can I find my editing steps including masks, brushes etc. and how exactly I applied them to the image? I tried to reproduce it again like in the log but there are not all informations in it like how I used the picture for the mask, brush and more. Just saturation and something I could reproduce 😕 Please find my sceenshots attached.

Looking at some of your screen-clips I notice-

1) The Drive you have selected is 'offline'. Is it plugged in? A Green spot should appear if it is online.

2) Many of your Folders show the 'Missing' question mark, and images show the 'Missing' exclamation mark.

This can be caused by several actions- Moving, renaming, or deleting the files with File Explorer, etc.

If you plug in the offline drive you may find the images will re-link. If not, you will need to Find the missing folders.

His answer is correct: If you have deleted the pictures and moved them to the other storage, then you simply relink their instances in Lightroom Classic to the new location of the pictures on the other storage. Once that is done, Lightroom Classic should be able to reconnect each image’s history, metadata, and previews by following the updated folder path you provide to their new location.

 

This is very similar to when a web page cannot load images that were moved to a different folder location. The web page loads the images by following the path recorded in the web page; if the recorded path is wrong, the images don’t load. Correcting the path re-establishes the links, and the pictures load on the web page. That is exactly how Lightroom Classic works too. It is also how media is linked in video editing applications…the paths to media must be correct, and if they are not, the paths must be updated to point to the new location, and then everything is reconnected and works once again.

Apparently you are panicking? Not thinking straight?

 

Ok, bring up the second link

 

Missing Files and Folders (Computer Darkroom)

 

Read that.

 

I would reccomend starting in Part 2, updating the folder location(s)
