Please clarify -- do you mean Lightroom CC or Lightroom Classic CC??
Now Lightroom seems to be "virgin". Not one of my in the past imported and processed or finished photos or theyr folders could be shown or found. Every adjustment I've made seem to be lost.
Perhaps you opened the wrong catalog. In Lightroom Classic CC (but not Lightroom CC) select File->Open Recent and then select each catalog shown there to open it, and see if it shows the folders and photos you want.
we use Lightroom Classic CC.
I have only one Catalog. A collegue told me to generate a new, empty catalog. I did this. Afterwards I opened the old again. But nothing happened.
Sometimes, people accidentally open a new catalog, or accidentally open the wrong catalog. You have to go to File->Open Recent, even if you think you have only one catalog.
You have to try opening both catalogs shown under File->Open Recent.\
If that doesn't work, you need to use your operating system's search feature to search all hard disks for files whose name ends with LRCAT.
If that doesn't work, you need to restore a recent backup of your catalog file.
Thank you very much, dj_paige.
All You told I did try before, but I am safe now! In the meantime our IT has restored the filled old catalog from my old PC and safed it from there. Seemed to me, Lightroom had started a empty catalog when opening the Programm. So there could have been no data in it. And I didn't know, that the catalog was not copyed to the new equipement.
Thanks for your help!
I do have the same problem as mentionned by Claudia, I have just a new PC and am re-installing everything.
I have found the LRCAT catalog but when I tried to upload them I got the following message :
The access path does not exist
Verify the access path
What should I do ?
Thank you in advance for your answer.
You use your operating system to find the catalog file (it's name ends with .LRCAT), although you probably ought to know where you put it. Once you have found it in your operating system, you double-click on it to open it in Lightroom.
