I imported two separate batches of 2K RAW images from my desktop hard drive by simply clicking the Import button and selecting the photos from my HD. I did not create a New Catalog from the upper left File tab like I normally do, as I only wanted to run through the images to flag and rate them. I finished that task and then went on to import a folder of 300 Jpeg images into a New Catalog. Once they were done importing I found that the only folder in my Local Disk area is the one with the 300 images, and both of the large folders with all of my flagged and rated images have disappeared. I have looked for them in the Open Recent tab, and they are not there. I spent 45 minutes on a chat with Adobe with no results, and have asked two LrC saavy friends for their opinion, and both are baffled. Anyone out there have an idea what went wrong and where those two folders are? Had I created two new catalogs for each of the lost imports I know they would both be there with the third one with the 300 images, but sadly I didn't do that. Help!
