A very weird thing happened to me today. I was editing a photo in Lightroom Classic, changed the profile, and Lightroom gave me the "this file cannot be found" error. I went to the source folder, and it wasn't there. I checked the recycle bin, it wasn't there either. I searched my entire computer and it's completely gone. I know a few weeks ago there was a story that the Lightroom app on phones would delete photos, but my understanding was that this was for the Lightroom CC app, not Lightroom classic on a computer.
It wasn't that important of a photo thankfully and I have the exported JPEG already, but I can't believe this happened. I've been using Lightroom for years and never had a single issue. Has anyone else experienced this or something similar?
