I used File>Migrate From>Lightroom Classic Catalog and waited for 14K images to load. NO ALBUMS. Everything is a hodgepodge lumped together. Needless to say, my anger is at an all-time high and I've been searching everywhere for a solution. I don't want to revisit dozens of events and recreate albums for 14K images!!

 

Help???

Lightroom Classic does not have albums, so you can't lose them. Did you use collections in Lightroom Classic? When you migrate a Lightroom Classic catalog, then collections in Lightroom Classic will become albums in Lightroom. If you expected your folder structure in Lightroom Classic to become albums, then that is not correct.

Johan, it's been resolved. I simply went back to Classic and removed CC which was the issue. Everything is there and I'm happier than one could ever be that I did not lose anything!! Thank you (and 99jon) for your guidance!!!!
