Before I upgraded from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion, I thought I did all the appropriate updades (to 10.6.8) and backups, I did a Time Machine backup literally right before I did the install.  During the install of Mountain Lion, my hard drive crashed and I had to get it replaced... which was covered by a Protection Plan.  When I got the computer back, it had the desired OS (10.8.3), and I was told that if I did a Time Machine restore from my last backup, everything would kinda "catch up" to the current OS.  So, just about everything "looks" the same as it did on the day when my original hard drive crashed (everything organized the same way on my desktop, multiple settings saved as they were before the crash)... but when I open iPhoto, it asks me what Library I want it to use.  There was no separate folder that I had my original photos saved in... but I always was able to find the root files within iPhoto.  But now iPhoto can't find them.  Where the **** are they... and did the update have something to do with them being moved, or worse...?


Thanks for any help
