MAC OS-X had hard drive failure last week. Had it replaced, upgraded to version 10.6.7 - but now approximately HALF of my photographs will only open in CR2 format in both bridge and PS4. (Why only half?) This holds true whether I am accessing them from the hard drive, or the back up copies in the external media storage device... I am able to load them back into the LR catalog, and then convert them to dng files, and then re-save them in a different folder, but is there an easier way? I have thousands of files to go through! Help! Thank you...
I hate to ask, but from where did you recover your CR2 files?
Just putting the obvious 2 + 2 together, could they have been corrupted by the hard drive failure?
