I downloaded 15 videos from a flip video. I was asked if I wanted to create a new library. I said yes. When the download was complete the previous I photo library with photos, videos --events is gone. Did the download create a new library and everything before it deleted (gone)? Is the other library hidden?

Thank you.

    Hard to say with so little information


    Do you have a backup?

    Drag your iPhoto library from the pictures folder to the. Desktop, launch Time Machine, go back to a time before the problem, select the iPhoto library and click restore. After it is done launch iPhoto


    Post back with the results
