    Accidentally removed folder from Lightroom. Can't seem to re-import and says catalogue is still full??

      So I may have just learnt something the hard way but am hoping there may be a solution. I was tidying up my folder structure when I went to remove an empty folder and accidentally removed my main root photo folder. I don't back up as much as I should and now fear I have lost all those images from the catalouge. However, as you can see in the picture my catalouge still says it has 22033 photographs in, and if I click on the catalouge all my photos are indeed there with edits attached to them they are just not in a folder structure. In addition when I go to reimport the root folder all the images are greyed out and I can't select them, even if I untick import suspected duplicates box. How do I get my folder structure back or am I in trouble?

       

      Thanks
