    Is there any collective way to have Lightroom 5 find lost files?

    Photographer q Level 1

      Though I have tried to move folders and files only with Lightroom, I note that a good number of my images shown in thumbnails in Library cannot be opened because Lightroom 5 cannot find the files.  I assume I have moved files among drives accidentally without Lightroom's knowledge.  I also note that I can control click and try to find individual files.  Is there any way to do this find process for entire folders or drives?  Can I import files from a drive (which is the original source of the lost files) in mass and run them through the import function on Lightroom and return them directly to the file from which they were imported?  Would this create a new thumbnail in Library but duplicate the files in the affected folder and drive?
