I have a gallery entry from ten years ago which got stored on my external 4T hard drive, aka Time machine. I was able to get the file located (took ten steps) from two computers back, and drop it on the
desktop. I get a file named IMG_2679.CR2.lrbak. That file shows up on the desktop just fine, but when I try to load it into LR, it flashes on the LR screen and vanishes. The icon on the desktop is a black square
with exec printed on it, nothing else. The file name is listed below the black square.
I would really like to retrieve this file, and also learn my lesson once and for all about saving files in the right place.
