Hi,

unfortunately, my disk on whoch I had all the photos crashed. In the catalogue, there are still all of the images with no acces to the original folder. Is there any chance to save photos from just the preview in the catalogue? I could export them as the original file is missing.

Thank you in advance

Markus

You need to restore the photos from your backups.

This is why you should make backups, but apparently you didn't? There is a plugin that can extract the previews if your original is really lost. http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-goodies/preview-extraction Adobe also made a free script: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/kb/extract-previews-for-lost-images-lightroom.html
