    I screwed up and moved a catalog to a harddrive and the deleted from desktop. Realized I needed to reexport a set larger. Both the entire catalog and original files back to its original location, I can see and edit my files but my original edits are gone. There are 5 days of things in this catalog, I see edits for the first 2 but not for the last 3. Any suggestions? I really don't want to re edit this wedding again.

    Hi, welcome to the forum.

    It sounds as though you may have opened a backup catalog by mistake. Is this possible?
