    Computer crash, hard disk readable: Can't find Lightroom 5 catalog.

      Computer crash, hard disk readable: Can't find Lightroom 5 catalog. Help appreciated.

       

      I was using LR 5.3 on Win7, never paying attention to the catalog name being used. My photo files were on the D: partition of the same physical hard disk.

       

      Now that I have a new Intel NUC computer, with Win7 installed on the drive C: (M.2 SSD), I have plugged my old Hard disk in as Drive E: (old C:) and Drive F (old D:)

       

      I have re-installed LR 5.3 and also upgraded to LR 6, but the problem is I can't find the catalog I was using with LR 5.3.

       

      I have searched for *.lrcat and see all past lightroom catalogs starting with LR 2, 3, 4, 5, getting bigger and bigger, but no catalog 5 with a current date.

      Would the catalog have another name or extension?

      I have the old C: drive. Is there a config file that would confirm where the catalog is suposed to be?

       

      Help!
