I had to reinstall windows, and then everything else and thus I had the reinstall LR (and everything else).

I created two colour label sets, and they both disappeared. The colour label for one set appear under the Lightroom default set (but without the names) and the files under the other set have a white label, but nothing else. I can't remember how I called them exactly. Is it fixable? Thanks.

Unfortunately not; The hidden "Program data" folder was not on the backup routine and I lost all my presets (mostly data, not development) , my Office template etc. The computer repaired in the shop (we were uncertain that if the problem was hardware or software) and the backing up was done there.

All my disks were reorganized and I have to reconnect all my photos...

Then I'm afraid you will have to recreate the label names. You can see what the label names are in the metadata panel, so this is a bit of work but should not be a major problem.

Thanks, it works. I am housing Norton 360 and it does not make it easy to customize the backups; You have to add all extensions by hand of the file type that you want back-up (it has some predifined file groups, but nothing from lightroom).
