My Macbook Pro has crashed. (insert scream here) Everything is on an external hard drive that I regularly back up.  I switched to using my iMac, opened Creative Cloud, updated Lightroom Classic (have never used it on this computer), opened Lightroom Classic, and another scream!!!  I see my hard drive, but only 2015 and 2016  files are there with the shadowed arrow beside the files inside.  I can clearly see the rest of the files on the hard drive, but not in lightroom.  I'm not a computer wiz, and I am not fluent in Lightroom.  Someone help???

running macOS Catalina 10.15.1

Mac mini (Late 2012)

2.6 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7

16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB

Was your catalog file on the external hard drive or on your Mac Book Pro? If it seems not be complete; right mouse click on the folder which contains the pictures and "sync" to import/complete the catalogue....
