All of my photos from Jan 24 to Feb. 9th in my catalog have disappeared from Lr three days after installing Lr6. In addition, new categories I did not create ("Quick Collection", "Previous import") appeared, showing old random pics. Any ideas?
Thanks for any advice/enlightenment. Brian G.
Sounds to me like you (accidentally) opened the wrong catalog file.
Go to File->Open Recent and select each catalog shown there and see if it shows you the photos of interest.
Thanks. but tried that and nothing there!
Use your operating system to search for all catalog files — they're name ends with .LRCAT.
Double-click on each one found to open it so you can see if the photos of interest are shown there.
