I worked 14 hours cleaning up about 2000 plus images for a wedding, renumbered the files as I have done hundreds of times,  closed the program  copied the compete folder with lr cat and all cr2 files to another drive   reopened the same catalog and it can not find renumbered files anywhere   searched finder  nothing  went to the back up folder  same exact problem  its as if lr4 never renumbered the cr2 files it just lost all the files   desparate  to get these back   do not want to lose all the work I did

    Hi Rolandsilva,

    What do you mean by renumbered the files.


    However, you create a collection of those renumbered files and then export the collection as separate catalog to external drive.

    Let me know the outcomes.

    How did you renumbered the files.

    Is it within the Lightroom or OS file system?


    Please attached comparison screenshot.
