Greetings,
I keep my LR 5 photos on an external drive that has failed. I automatically make a second copy to another external drive and I have been able to point LR to the new drive. Unfortunately, my Collections did not make the transition - attached is a screen shot of what I am seeing in LR. The Collections are present, but no photos. Can you help? Many thanks!

Yes. I have it set to back up the catalog each week. The last back up that I have before the external drive with all of my photos failed is 10/26/18. Many thanks for your help!
