Lightroom Classic: Lost Edits/Files Moved

I am a total amateur. I use Lightroom to manage and edits files . . . I recently upgraded to "classic cc".

Today, I was importing photos from camera card and several days of photos that I know were previously imported and edited by me showed as "new -- to be imported."

I have two (related?) issues. Firstly, the files imported at the root "C" rather than "C/Pictures" .  When I try to move them within lightroom, i get a message that a file folder with that date already exists at c/Pictures.

Also, I cannot see edits made to these previous pictures.

What is going on? How do I recover my previous edits? How do I get my photos all organized in one directory? Is this related to that stupid OneDrive that seems to have also taken over my computer? Help please.

Most likely you used another catalog to import. That does explain both issues.
