Hi Ravid Perry,
If the original images are lost, then the images cannot be recovered from Lightroom as Lightroom does not store original images. It generates previews and remember the location of the images stored on hard drive.
You can recover those images only if you have backup of those original images.
Thank you for the quick answer but this is something that i already knew, what i was trying to do is to make the "The file could not be found" text go away somehow so i can take screenshots of the lost photos.
any way to do that?
Thanks for the update.
There is no such way to make that "File could not be found" message go away.
It can go away only when you would relocate those previews with the original images.
Not what i was hoping to hear but thats the reality i guess.
thank you for helping
You're welcome Ravid.
Wanted to add on something that you can try to extract jpeg previews from those missing images with the help of this article :
This might help you but will recover images only in jpeg format.
