      External hard drive failed where images were held, any way to get LR to possibly get back any photos? I had a "backup" but no idea what good that is. External drive was the only form of the data, failed before I could copy it to a new computer. I have the previews but LR says file cannot be found, hoping to be able to generate files using a preview?? Drivesavers said it would cost $1600 for my files(556gb) and the drive had severe logical failure. I cannot wait the time they need for the data back as I have Senior photos that need to be in this week. Any way to retrieve some through the program? Online backup didn't save them yet...
