I did an improper import--my files went to my hard drive when they should have gone to my EXTERNAL HD. I then did days of work on them. Then I deleted the files from my HD, like a dope. And so when I went to export, the files were missing.
Fortunately I still have the originals on my SD card. So, is it possible to correctly re-import these files to my external HD without losing all of the adjustments which I have already done? Thanks

Do NOT re-import! Copy the files from your SD card to your external HD using your operating system. Then, in Lightroom, point the missing files to their location on your external HD.
Again- Do NOT re-import!

This will suggest the methods to re-link your catalog data with the files you copy from the SD card.
