New to LRC so please excuse my ignorance. Recently downloaded photos from memory card and after editing I disengaged my memory card and shut down my computer without moving or backing up my photos. Now when I open my LRC I see my photos but if I try editing or moving it tells me " The file cannot be found". Am I screwed or is there some magical way to retrieve. Unfortunately I only have one CFexpress card so I reformated so no way to get from it again.
Sounds like LR somehow let you do an "add" import using the CFE card?
In the Folder panel, where does LR think the photos are stored? (Do a "show parent" on the folders as needed.)
If the photos were not copied off the card during the import, you will need to use some undelete software on the card using a card reader, assuming you have not overwritten the files by reusing the card. Then you can copy the files off the card and redirect LR to the new location.
