Hi,

 

recently I re-installed windows and after installing Lightroom Classic I am missing all my presets that I had before re-install. What is more, in library section I see only folders that are dated until February, so 5 months are missing! I was backing-up each time when I was asked to and still I am missing presets and folders, can anyone suggest any help?

Did you backup your Presets and Plugins before you re-installed Windows? (OS re-install may have deleted these folders!)

Did you backup the most recent Catalog to another drive?

Did you re-open Lightroom-Classic with a Catalog extracted from Backups? (might explain the 'old' catalog to February)

 

Re-installing the OS is like Moving to another computer, and the info at these links might help explain what was needed-
