Hi,

I installed new windows and LR classic in my second PC. After log in in Adobe I have to choose which PC, LR stay and which not because licence is for 2 PC. Choice was hard because doesn't exist PC number so I choose wrong and LR, PS everything been lost on my First PC so I lost over 160 pictures after production. How I can back it to my LR installed again?

You post this in the Lightroom CC forum, but in your initial message you talk about Lightroom Classic, so I assume that the old PC it’s also Lightroom Classic. If Lightroom Classic starts up without any images, then it apparently created a new empty catalog. You will need to find your old catalog and open that one in Lightroom. I can’t tell you where your old catalog is or what its name is, but the default location for catalogs is your Pictures folder. The catalog file has a “.lrcat” extension, so look for that or do a search on that. You can also try if the ‘Recent’ menu in Lightroom lists that catalog.

Nothing has been lost. You just have to login again on the old PC as well.
