Try this one.

 

This plugin works in Lightroom Classic, and older versions as far back as Lightroom 4.

"erased by mistake my original images."

 

Check the Windows Recycle bin or Mac Trash for the deleted files.

Unfortunately, the files was so heavy that my Windows bin erased it completely because it was too heavy to go in the bin.

The first step should be to restore the backups of your original images.

I tryed to restore my backup catalog but it didn't work properly because in the catalog the images was missing as well. 

 

But when you say 'to restore the backups of your original images' are there an other way than with catalog?

 

Thank you.

The LrC catalog file contains all of your editing information, but NOT the actual imported image files. In addition to the LrC Catalog Backups you need to use a separate file synchronization backup application for the image files. The LrC Catallog and image file Backup should be on a separate 2nd HDD or Cloud storage. The cheapest solution is to use an external USB 3.0 portable HDD such as the WD Elements or Passport. Here are some file synchronization applications:

You should backup all of your Windows Library folders (My Documents, My Music, My Pictures, My Videos, etc.) and any other folders that contain media and document files.
