    How to restore recent changes from back up when lightroom 5 did not shut down properly?


      I'm working on a Mac, which did an auto-update that apparently force quit Lightroom 5, which hadn't been closed for a week and thereby had a lot of "unsaved" work in its temporary files. Now when I open the catalogue I'm back to where I was a week ago, with non of the new changes. However, my time machine back up has backed up .lrcat, preview.lrcat, .lrcat-journal and .lrcat-lock files from right before the shutdown which should--in theory--have the data I need in them. How do I restore this data? I've tried several different methods with no luck yet. Thanks!
