Hi all! I posted yesterday and I copied all my LRC catalogs and photos to an external drive, which I then back up to another for Safety. I also did a time machine backup before doing anything so my work is safe. I followed the instructions to a T. The issue I am having now is that a big chunk of my work from when I was still working off a MacBook air is still missing. A photo will have an exclamation point, and I will try and find it. It tells me to find it in Lightroom/mobiledownloads.lrdata/Macbook air/filename. 

On my external drive there is a Mobiledownloads catalog, but I cant click on it. Im also haveing trouble finding it on my time machine. Can anyone help?

Did you do a system search on '.lrdata'? Are you on Big Sur?
