    Recover Library/Photos from Backup?

    markp99

      I re-installed Win7 last week, after performing a complete back-up to an external drive.

       

      I have re-installed LR5, and now would like to recover the libraries/photos from that back-up.  After a couple attempts, it is clear I have no clue what to do.

       

      Here is what I have (copied to a folder on my desktop):

       

      From Back-Up

      ============================

      1.  Lightroom 4 Catalog.lrcat

      2.  Lightroom 4 Catalog Previews.lrdata

      3.  Lightroom 5 Catalog.lrcat

      4.  Lightroom 5 Catalog Previews.lrdata

       

      Note:  I have added some photos to the current LR5 catalog

       

      Any suggestions to complete this task?

       

      Thanks!
