LR Classic CC  catalog files are missing.
When I opened up LR yesterday the " Upgraded Version of Catalog Found" came up.It asked me to select "Yes, use the newer, upgraded catalog" or "No, upgrade the older Catalog". I clicked on newer and then LR started up but I got a blank LR and it said " the file could not be found. I haven't been able to find my file to get it going. All my catalogs on my computer say they are empty.

You don’t say Mac or Windows.

Which is your operating system (Mac / Windows)?
What is the version of Lightroom Classic used in your old catalog?
Please let us know if the problem persists, we can take a look at your old catalog.

Do you know where the catalog supposed to be? When you doubleclick that .lr at file, what happens?
