Photos Exists, but Folders Mossing?

Ok, this is a weird one! The update to LR Classic was yesterday. Today, I load the Catalog, and two of the three drives are showing their Folder structure, but my main Volume is not displaying a Folder Tree - but the photos ARE in the catalog?

 

How do I get the Folder tree back?

Is the drive listed in the Folders panel? If so, click the white triangle at the right of the that drive to twirl it down.

Yes - weird! Screen-clip indicates MacHD is active (green light) and spinner is 'down' but no folders showing.

Are the photos in MacHD showing the 'missing' exclamation mark?

Usual suggestions include-

1) Close LrC, reboot computer

2) Reset LrC Preferences   Preferences Reset 

3) Start LrC while holding Ctrl/Cmd key, and select [Test Integrity]

4) Restore and Open a Backup Catalog.   RESTORE A CATALOG FROM BACKUP

So I did everything but the restore, and it didn't work.

Ok, guys, I found a solution!

 

I took a longshot and dropped a photo in the root folder and imported that one photo and everything came back!

Pleased you have them back! Nice answer.Thanks

Sounds like a similar problem (bug?) to Missing 'Collections' that I have seen in forum posts, but cannot recall where!
