    all photos are missing

    margarets44835583

      I backed up my photos last night and now all of them are missing.  I can't even see the images, only gray boxes with exclamation marks.  When I attempt to locate I see the folders I used to have, but how do I know which photo I am locating?  Also, is there no way to choose multiple photos rather than picking one at a time. 

       

      I have learned that this is by far one of the more confusing issues with Lightroom- locating missing photos when I either backup, change the name, put on external hd, etc.  Also, just understanding the catalogs in general. 

       

      I can't wrap my head around it and I am sure there is an explanation. 

       

      I am sure it is much easier for many people!

       

      Thanks for any tips,
