You most likely have upgraded the wrong catalog file.

 

In LrC, use File->Open Recent and select each catalog shown there until you find the catalog you want. If that doesn't work, use your operating system's search feature to search all folders on all disk(s) for files whose name ends with .LRCAT. Open each file that is found this way by double-clicking on it, until you find the catalog you want.

 

By the way, you do have backups of your catalog file, don't you?

Non ho scleto io il catalogo da aggiornare, è avvenuto in automatico.

Se vado su catalogo recente mi dà soltanto il nuovo aggiornato.

Ho provato a mettere il vecchio ma me lo fa aggiornare obbligatoriamente.

Sorry for the 3 answers but I was in panic.

I'm seeing it is still sync my files...maybe at the end I will find everything right.

I have to say it was very bad because I was working and lightroom closed for an error, then when it restarted it asked for an automatic update of the catalog and it updated a wrong catalog!

Thank you for your help
