Help!!!! 1. Crashed computer. 2 Friend volunteered to set up new computer while I had to be out of town. 3. I used Lightroom Classic 7.3 but I also now have LRCC 1.2...with all 8K+ photos on it! So how do I get my photos back to LRClassic or Just leave them there and learn LRCC. The LRCC screen I have looks like a browser page only with not tabs for Library, Develop, etc...a few buttons on the right for corrections. Some panels on the left for Navigator and folders but look different than LRClassic...what to do.

Other than that, is your computer OK?  No viruses or malware?
Have you verified the state of your hard disks?
Have you reinstalled the OS?

I'd start with those, because I don't believe only one thing gets screwed up.  You simply came across the first occurrence of a (possibly major) problem.

Are you on a Mac ore PC?  If the former, what version of the OS are you running?  If you're running Windows, all I can do is to try to help you approach the issue without knowing where the files are or should be.

Either way, it looks like you've got to go through a procedure called "Root Cause Analysis" to determine what went wrong, how to fix it and how to prevent kit from happening again.

It's a lot of work.
