    Lost all my Smart Previews.  How do I restore them and prevent this from happening again.


      Last week I built a few thousand smart previews and moved originals off of computer.  I had edited many of the smart previews through sunday, Feb. 7.  The following morning not one of the thousands of smart previews that I created could be seen an any of my many files.  The only Smart Preview file in my Lightroom backups is from 2014, of no help. 


      How do I restore them without having to rebuild them?  How do I prevent this from happening again?  Thanks.
