My computer was running extremely slow. So, I closed everything and restarted the computer. Now, LR CC looks like it is a new, clean install.
Zero images previously imported
iMac running OS-X 10.10.4 with LR CC
I looked for an .lrcat.zip and found nothing. I found a .lrcat and it was empty. I've been running LR CC for a month and have 8,000 images in this machine in a half dozen collections. Now, when I start LR CC, it's like it never ran on this iMac before.
I was half way through editing about 800 images from this current import. The only thing that seems possible is to start over.
You have obviously opened an empty catalog file. You need to find the catalog file with your 8,000 images. Please try these steps:
I tried these with no luck.
1. Recent did show a single collection from an import last week. Not the current one or the others.
2. the only .LRCAT that shows up anywhere in my Finder is the one showing in #1.
3. Did a search and found .LRCAT.zip but that had the single collection from #1
Tried restarting again. No luck.
