Previous PC set up [Windows 7]:-
Data Drive D as backup
64 G SSD accelerator
Main C drive 2Tb
Power supply fails as does the SSD
Repair and improvement:-
[NB done by me with phone line support]
Replace Power supply
Install 250 Gb SSD to be designated as the C drive [for speed]
Rename previous C drive as F
Adobe programmes now on C drive but data stored of F
Lightroom problem:- I have reassigned the catalogue to:-
F:\Users\Mike\Pictures\Lightroom\Lightroom 5 Catalog.Ircat and so can now import all photographs.
HOWEVER, I can only access the original RAW files. All my work on these photos appear to have gone! I presume the sidecar XMP files have to be accessed differently or have I really lost all my work?
"F:\Users\Mike\Pictures\Lightroom\Lightroom 5 Catalog.Ircat" is this is the original catalog that you were using on your other computer as well
