Hi every body, 

So I had a computer problem resulting in 3 years of original JPG and Raw files deleted of my comptuter. 

 

Luckily, I still have the highest quality of preview in my LR classic catalog, thank god.

 

How do I export those files and/or recreate folder to match my catalog from those preview?  Because now I can't export those files and that missing original icon is anoying!

 

Thanks for your help

There are plugins that can create JPGs from the Preview cache. Be aware that the size/quality of the created files depends entirely on the available Previews.

And why did you NOT have file backups? A serious lesson to learn!!
