    Empty Collection Folders

    claireh81207653

      Hi

       

      I followed the incorrect process when moving the Lightroom Catalog and files plus all photo folders from a hard drive to an external drive and as a result the Collection folders are still showing but are now empty (Basic Collections not Smart Collections).

       

      I reconnected to the Catalog in Lightroom in it's new external drive location and all the photos are showing as they should be I think, with star ratings retained. But I deleted the hard drive photo folders that were in Lightroom Folders and re-added them in their new external drive location - I realise now I should have just searched for them in their new location via the existing folders that were showing.

       

      Please can anyone tell me if there is a way to retrieve the images in Collections without having to re-add them from scratch? Is the Collection information stored in the Catalog and is there a way to get to this?

       

      Many thanks
