I just deleted a file off my external hard drive, that was one particular session, and now when I go into Lr I am getting the No Files Found for all sessions I have done so far in 2020.  Could someone guide me to fixing this please?

Thank you for replying, David.

I am using Lr Classic 9.3 on a Macbook Pro 2017.  And yes, it was a folder I had deleted. I had the folder saved as a specific name from a family session done last year.  Now when I try to go into any current work, the photo's are all there, but I get the message that No Files Are Found, and then a box shows up with a message asking if I would like to locate said image.  Also a box that shows "Previous location:/Volumes/TOSHIBA EXT/COURTNEY/2020/2020-6-28/IMG_3808.CR2"

I am new to using macbooks.  I make sure each session I do, I name them according to each family or person to keep them seperate and not one big folder.

 

Thank you for your time!!!

What file did you delete?

Are you sure it was a file and not a folder?

Or maybe you thought you were deleting one photo but you accidentally deleted many photos?

 

Do you have a recent backup of your catalog file?

Have you tried using the "Find missing folders" option in the library module? That will enable you to point Lightroom to where the images/folders are located on the new computer.

Hello Jim,

 

Thank you!  I tried that, but I'm still getting the same notification.  I believe I have lost all my work and will need to start over.  I'm not sure why when deleting one folder, it would delete all photo's off my external hard drive.  Is there something I could do to avoid this in the future?  How to remove/delete without losing all my work? I have everything backed up on a seperate drive and will need to re-upload everything.

 

Thank you for your time!!

Are the images still on the external hard drive? Can you see those images in Finder?
