Sucks that my first post has to be a cry for help, but here goes:
I've slowly built up the quick collection to over 800 images spanning since 2010. I use it as a process queue of sorts, of images that I want to get to eventually.
I did something silly, I'm not sure what, and my entire quick collection has been emptied except for a few images I added from the last import.
The only thing I changed from long standing habits is that the last import consists of images I first tagged and starred in Photo Mechanic. This is the first time I've tried that, so I am assuming it has to be related.
The question is: Is there any way to automatically revert back to an older quick collection?
I have done some googling but all I can find is a suggestion that I open a previously backed up catalog, export the quick collection as a catalog, then re-import that. I am willing to try this, but don't want to bring in duplicate images.
Please help. Thanks in advance.
