I had 50,000 images retrieved from a faulty hardrive containing my lightroom catalogue. The file names of the retrieved images have chaged. Is it possible to re-link them to my retrieved LR catalogue??? I can't see away of doing this. Mnay thanks - Jez

If the file names have changed, you'd have to either

  1. somehow change them back to their original names (maybe ExifTool can do that?); OR
  2. reconnect the photos one-by-one

Thank you - I will see if ExifTool can find the original name before the files were retrieved? Fingers crossed
