i was in a car accident yesterday and unfortunately had my laptop with me. The screen is completely damaged. I've been able to hook it up to a tv monitor and am actively getting all my files onto external devices. However, I'm wondering about all my Lightroom files and work currently on there. I have a creative cloud subscription.. if my Lightroom is backed up and I download Lightroom on to another computer (through my subscription), would I still be able to access all my files/work that are currently backed up on there? Or is there a whole other process to this. I'm trying not to freak out, but I have so many projects on my Lightroom app that I have already been paid for that I really can't afford to lose any of it.
(Obviously I will be backing up on to my external hard drive more often from here on out.)
Copy all your images and the LR catalog file over to the new computer, IE over to the external drive connected to your old damaged computer and then over to the new computer.
As long as you use the same catalog file and you have all your images in the same PATH as they were on the damaged computer you will not lose anything.
