Lightroom: Where are my collections?

When I started Lightroom 4 this morning, I got a pop up asking if I wanted to update my current catalog to LR4 or start a new LR4 catalog. I chose update the current catalog. Now, I have no collections and the Blurb book that I have been working on for the past two weeks are gone. Is there a way to get them into the updated catalog? The last backup catalog was made last Friday - I hope I haven't lost three days of work.

Thanks, RJF

You're opening (and upgrading) you v3 catalog over and over again. Search for Lightroom catalogs (.lrcat) all over your hard drive and see what 's the right one.

You could also try using the File>Open Recent menu.

If you were already running Lightroom 4 and opening a LR4 catalog you should not have been prompted to upgrade the current catalog.

So, is it possible you opened a LR3 catalog, therefore receiving the prompt to upgrade. This would explain why the book you were building wasn't there as it wouldn't have been available in the LR3 catalog.
