    Recover Library/Photos from Backup?


      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?
