    Getting adjustments back after macOS clean install

    philipn95815980 Level 1

      I plan to clean install macOS on my iMac. I have the whole drive backed up, so I should be able to get to any Lightroom files that presently exist.


      But I'm confused as to how the non-destructive aspect works, especially with regards to putting everything back together again.


      The NEFs in the Finder don't have the careful adjustments I've made, of course.  But if I put back all the files in my Lightroom folder from the backup, with paths remaining identical, will all my adjustments just re-appear?
