    PC crashed. How do I restore environment from backup files?

    Stratmeister

      My Windows 8 PC hard drive is kaput. I installed a new hard drive and recovered the PC and installed Lightroom 5.7.1.

       

      I had been backing up my catalog and pictures (when imported) to an external drive that is still working and available.

       

      How to I restore my old Lightroom environment? The backups are not stored in the same manner the database was, they're in subfolders like "imported on Setptember 9, 2013" or something similar. What is the restore process?

       

      Thanks for any and all help,

      Ray
