Just an update on finding my lost images. With help from everyone I got the idea of locating my lost images but it was not very successful. What worked was using “Synchronize” function. This just readressed all folders to their current location and I was then easily able to drag all the image folders from 3 external drives and relocate onto one external drive.
I found the synchronize fix on a YouTube video.

Hal, just be aware that synchronizing folder removes them from the catalog and adds them at the new location, so you might have lost your edits in the process.
