LIghtroom shot down after crash and now only shows empty foto book. Pictures included in the book however are still shown as used in the picture bar. Is there a way to restore the original book without backup?
I'm working on a PC and restarting Lighroom and PC both failed.
Without Backup- No.!
If you do have a Catalog Backup, it may be there.
Good advice is- always "Create a Saved Book" (that will be in the Collections Panel) when you have a basic design started. A "Saved Book" always updates as you alter pages and images in the Book module.
And always backup the catalog!
