In step 3, you need to navigate to wherever you placed the "Charles pre-web" folder, select just that one folder, and then click Choose.
That's part of the problem, the folder does not show up.
I don't remember if I moved it to another HD or deleted it? In Step 4 it asks me if I want to Merge because it is somewhere in LR. Do I merge?
Do not click Merge -- that will completely mess up everything.

In LR, click on the "Charles pre-web" folder, and Library view will show you just the thumbnails of the photos that were in that folder. Choose one of the photos, write down its exact filename (e.g. "DSC03025.dng"), and then use the Mac's Finder to search for it on your hard drives. Once you find where it is, go back to LR and click the "!" in the upper-right corner of the photo's thumbnail, and then click Locate.
Thanks. I'm sure that I have clicked Merge in the past for other images.
I think I need to open Bridge and see if and where my images are and if I renamed them. It will be a long and tedious process.
Thanks for your time and help. Wish me luck.
