Hello Steve

I'd like to know if you can help me with this!

Before I upgrade to Lightroom 3.4 64bit when I was in Library Mode and I clicked on 'saved preset' it only showed the ones I had created.

Now it shown a whole lot of preset that I don't use or want.

is there a way of getting rid of them.

Hi Charles –

Presets are stored either in your catalog, or in your Lightroom folder off your User folders. I can’t tell you exactly which one until I get my workstation set back up in 3-4 weeks and can go look.. but I’m sure you can find them yourself with a bit of searching.

If they’re in the catalog you’ll need to change where they’re stored (back to LR folder) and start over after deleting the default presets.

Hope this helps

Thank you for that, I've tried to delete them from their folder, but they still show up in lightroom.

Anyway, for the moment it's not that important!

I have just noticed that all my photos from my trip to ko Mak with Goi are missing!

I don't know how it happened, I may have deleted them by accident!

I didn't back them up!, Yeah I know Stupid!!!!!!!!!!

I've used data recovery software before, about 3 years ago, is there one that you could recommend?

Charles –

Did you look at the hard drive structure to see if they were still there, but only deleted from LR? This is the first thing you should do.. if they’re on the hard drive but not in LR.. then just import them from their current location to where you want them to be.

About recovery software:

1. Nothing will recover what you’ve already written over. So, if you’ve lost these files and have continued to use the drive then there’s a good chance you’ve at least written over the files partially.

2. For memory cards I prefer Sandisks Rescue Pro. It will even work with hard drives, but it’s time consuming. If you search the web you’ll find a few free ones, but most are tied to some way to get money from you.

3. Don’t forget to check your recycle bin..

Good luck Charles.
