I have 4TB of pictures that I removed from an HD with bad sectors, I intend to create a new catalog. How do I import all my raw files with it's data without losing nothing?
I split the photos into 3 others hdd and removed the broken one 😞
If you still have access to that catalog, see:
Akso, for fixing the mess up
If the disk with the photos had a problem, and the catalog was not affected, then you do NOT need a new catalog. In fact, creating a new catalog is the wrong thing to do.
DO NOT CREATE A NEW CATALOG
DO NOT IMPORT ANY PHOTOS TO A NEW CATALOG.
Everything you have done in the past is in a catalog you used previously.
Find that catalog.
Because your photo files are in a new location (in Lr terms "missing" ) you will need to re-link them with instructions as in these links-
