For some unknown reason, the rather important year of 2018 disappeared from the Photos application on an Macbook Air with the latest macOS.
The owner insists that nothing was deleted as far as they know, just a gaping hole in the years.
iCloud Photos is not being used.
Where can I look for solutions? Is there a remote possibility to recover the photos using some kind of tool?
If I look in the Photo Library in Finder (Right-click -> Package Contents) I have all folders except 2018.
I am considering a file repair service but wanted to ask if there were other ways before paying for a scan
