    Can I fix a corrupt recovered (previously deleted) catalog file?

    alex47228305

      Formatted a hard drive without first taking a copy of my .lrcat backups. Now, using file recovery software, I have got a few different version of the .lrcat over a period of 4-5 months but none of them open in Lightroom (v 5.7.1). 'Repairing' the file does not work either and when I try to 'Import from another catalog' I get a message saying 'the catalog does not appear to be a valid Lightroom catalog'. Any ideas if this is fixable or should I just accept that I will not get the old catalog back?
