Hi there - 

 

I deleted ~14k photos that I had flagged as rejected. I chose to delete them from the library but not from the disk.  I intended to keep a backup hard drive for everything I deleted (as I have always done) but they are completely gone.  No option under photos to see deleted photos, no file names for those files on my main hard drive.  And I checked the recycling bin just in case but they aren't there either.  Any help?

 

Thanks!

Did you use your operating system's search feature to search ALL folders on ALL disks for these photos?


Don't you have backups of all photos in your Lightroom Classic catalog?

Thanks for the reply. I've always deleted photos but then kept the deleted ones elsewhere incase I later find I deleted them by mistake.
