that could be spooky
I ask the obvious first >>tried going to file>> open cat (ctrl+o) or open recent catalogs (windows btw)
Is lightroom still on the h/drive >>Computer>>program file>>adobe (thats the path to mine)
May need to go to saved/back-uped catalogs which you have done haven't you? In windows those are in my pictures. Sorry; I better leave the instructions for using the saved catalog to the more educated. I have done it ........ followed instruction from a book.
Don't panic; everything will be there and I'm sure someone will be able to help.
Another question: you experienced with LR?
I tried open recent but nothing loads. I have done backups but do not know how to reload. I do not understand how to move images back in to lr. Where is the old catalog,is it still there somewhere that can be moved back in with all of the edits? I had thousands of pictures and now it says 0.
don't panic; the photos are still your hard drive or should be so just check the hard is alive
when you clicked on open recent did anything show up?
there will be stuff on the www about reinstalling from the cat back ups so use google
