Hey all! I recently had a HD crash on me and I lost about 6 years worth of photos! When I started to panic, I found these great instructions (https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/kb/extract-previews-for-lost-images-lightroom.html?jarvisD...) on how to install a recovery script and extract pictures from the Lightroom previews. I got the script to install, but when I run it, I chose the location of where I want to save the image, it says "writing best available previews" and then nothing. There is no error message, and no image where I told it to save. Running Lightroom CC 7.0. Please help!
I have this exact problem. The tutorial works well all the way up to selecting the output folder. But as soon as you run it, it says, "writining best available previews," (that is not, in fact, a typo--it genuinely seems they did not spell writing correctly) and exports nothing. Did you ever find a solution?
