I was importing images, when my pc blacked out due to overheating. At the time of restarting the import I could still see the images in the explorer (WIN8) and in the import dialogue. The import goes seemingly smoothly without any error messages. The problem is that the images are not shown within LR.

The previews seem fine in the import dialogue, but does not render inside LR5. I have tried to copy-import and add-import. I'm stumped at what to do.

Deleting existing .xmp-files created during the interrupted and attempted import, and reinstallation of LR solved the issue.
