When upgrading my catalog from a previous version, Lr 5 5.7v loss the connecting link to thousands of files. Anyone know a solution to this problem?
Perhaps you could explain what you did, the EXACT steps followed, to upgrade the catalog. Also, what was the previous version?
Unlinked files can be fixed by: See these instructions:Adobe Lightroom - Find moved or missing files and folders
Previous version Lr 3. After installing Lr 5 5.6 and then 5.7. Opened Lr5, then opened catalog used with Lr 3 and was requested to upgrade catalog so it could be used with Lr 5. I did. Went to Develop pics and found thousands of missing links which were obviously not there with Lr 3. Tx.
