My lightroom catalogue got deleted, backup was apparently in same folder as the catalogue but a separate folder from all the images so I tried to rebuild the catalogue by making a new one importing the full folder set. However, though it says the import is complete many of the folders and photos won't show up in LR though when I try to reimport those it refuses claiming that they are already present. When I do a search for the photos by name they are not found anywhere nor do they show when I scroll through the full photo set. Where are they? How can I get them to show up on LR again.

Sadly has something similar. Luckily had only small catalog so was able to rebuild from scratch.

Hi Miranda,

The issue is not reproducible at our end.
Could you provide us some more details?
