I recently moved and a hard drive was damaged in the move! It is at a repair center! I have four weddings on this Drive and I need Serious Help PLEASE! I heard that it is Possible to run a script if your images are still visible in lightroom that will produce a small actual image of them! I cannot find how to do this and I am hoping to find someone with experience that would be willing to help me or send directions or possible walk me thru it! I am Shattered at this point and I am in desperate need of information on any or all possibilities to fix this! THe Drive has been at Kroll for over a month for repair and has still not made it thru the first step of recovery! I have to have an alternative solution! Please!!! ANY HELP would be greatly Appreciated!
The first thing I would do is restore the backups of your photos to their original locations.
If you don't have backups (why not? you need to commit yourself to making regular automated backups of all of your important files, including your photos and Lightroom catalog file, no excuses!), then you can retrieve the previews (which are small JPGs of your photos) via a plug-in, such as robcole.com - PreviewExporter.
