Hi Rikk,

Would you tell me what operating system you are using?

There are two of us???

Greetings other Rikk!

When you install updates (Specifically the Lightroom Classic CC 7.x update, it gives you the option to remove previous versions of Lightroom. It is easy to miss during the Creative Cloud App upgrade process.  Do you remember seeing? changing? that option during upgrade?

In any case, you can restore Lightroom CC2015 via the Creative Cloud app . If you have a subscription however, Lightroom CC2015 will replace Lightroom 6 (they are the same program). 

If you do not have a subscription however and did not install Lightroom Classic CC, then we have another issue here.
