Did you re-import the images?
Did you move any of the images with Explorer?
Are there any '?' on the folders or '!' on the thumbnails in the library?
Which exact version of LR are you using?
Please the exact process of what you have been doing with and/or without LR.
I have Lightroom CC 2015. I went into My Pictures > Lightroom > Backups and then opened the second most recent backup, save the image I had ruined and then went into Pictures > Lightroom > Backups again and opened the most recent backup.
The odd thing is that the second most recent backup (the one I opened to retrieve an image) is dated from July 3rd and the most recent is dated at July 13. The images that got reverted to their original non edited form are only ones that I have worked on since July 21st. Anything I had done before then yet still after July 13 is still edited.

Are you talking about catalogs or photos here? Does this mean your imported the photos?
So you are talking about catalogs now.
Yet earlier, when you said the following, you are clearly talking about images, right?
I was searching for an older version of an image because I accidentally saved a lower dpi version over the good one. I opened an older version of my images to find the original edited image at its proper dpi and in the end lost all of the edits I had done on other images. How do I go back to the other images? (I have a pc)
Images in catalogs do not have a dpi, and although they have a number for "pixels per inch" or ppi, it is entirely meaningless. So I'm really not sure that any of this makes sense to me. If you have an image with the proper edits, and as I said the ppi is meaningless, then you have the proper edit of the image in one of your catalogs. Is this correct or not? Explain how an image can have the wrong dpi in Lightroom. Explain exactly where you are looking in Lightroom to determine that it had the wrong dpi.
I lowered the size of the image Photoshop, saved it accidentally over the original. Because of this, the version in Lightroom was lowered. This isn't the issue though. The problem is that I tried to find and earlier version of my image and ended up resetting a series of other images Lightroom. Dpi doesn't matter here, I was just giving context as to how I go into the dilemma.
The issue here is that I opened an earlier catalog and am unable to return to the most recent version. As a result hours of editing was undone. When I open the most recent catalog, it opens the older one (I think..).
Alright, well I just stumbled upon the answer. Thanks for trying to help though.
Would you mind sharing what your root issue was ... it may help others.
Sorry, haven't been on this for a while. Unfortunately I do not quite remember how it was fixed, especially since someone did it for me. I would gladly delete this thread; however, I don't think I can...
