Hello, in one of my lightroom catalog, I am missing all the original dng files (not sure what happened ?). 

All my photos had been edited in lightroom Classic, spent days on them and I do not want  to redo everything. I have about 5000 files in this catalog.

Good news, I sill have the smart previews and the original raw files.

 

Is there a way I can re-import the original raw files and associate them with the smart previews in the catalog so I do not have to re-edit them all over again?

 

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Please do not post the same message in two forums. You also posted this message where it belongs: in the Lightroom Classic forum. And you got an answer there. I will lock this thread for that reason.
