    How to recover previous catalogs from external hard drives after erasing and reinstalling computer software?

    bayleighl532520

      I have an iMac. Last night Apple had me erase my operating system and reinstall it. I have an external hard drive and did a back up just before we did that. Everything was there. Now that my computer is back up and running, I reinstalled Lightroom and am having trouble with the catalogs. Of course when I reinstalled Lightroom, it created a new catalog but I went back to my latest LIGHTROOM back up, double clicked and it seemed to pull up my previous catalog with some files missing. How do I recover those files? It's like they're there but. I'm attaching a screen shot.Screen Shot 2015-11-06 at 3.24.14 PM.png
