Only very small copies of them from the LR created Preview files. 

 

Use Google for search on the instruction on how to do that.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about the hard drive. You can try the steps mentioned in the article below to extract images from the previews.

Note: The quality and size of the images would depend on the type of previews created.

 

Regards,
