i accidentally deleted my catalogs, all my photos are gone, and the back up folder is empty !!! i need helpppp...
Did you really delete the photos, or is just that because the catalog is gone you can't see them?i accidentally deleted my catalogs, all my photos are gone, and the back up folder is empty !!! i need helpppp...
your help is appreciated..i tried looking in my trash bin and the trash bin is also empty..!!! iam going to try searching for the lrcat extension on my HD..will report my findings soon after..thanks again
What are you calling Collection Folder? When you open LR do you have a catalog open?i intentionally deleted photos from collection folder...
These files are not catalogs. I'm surprised that they even show up in the menu list.lightroom 5 catalog.lrcat.lock-journal.lock
lightroom 5 catalog.lrcat.lock-journal
lightroom 5 catalog.lrcat.lock
also keep in mind that i have added new photos to lightroom .
Just follow my 4 step instructions:ok so should i save photos in LR by extracting them to a desk top folder..and then try and follow instructions to delete all files with "lock" extension..???
1. Close LR
2. Navigate to the folder where the catalog lightroom 5 catalog.lrcat is found
3. Delete the files with the ".lock" extension
4 Reopen LR and open the file named lightroom 5 catalog.lrcat or just double click on the file.
