I recently had a HD crash on my primary computer, which I used to work on all my Lightroom files (CC). While the primary machine was being fixed, I used my backup machine to load NEF files (into LR 2014). I worked on them there, all OK so far.

The primary machine is back in service. I wanted to include the NEF files I had worked on in the secondary machine into my CC catalogue of the primary machine so imported all of those files. I noticed that the NEFs imported OK but the xmp sidecars, which were paired with the NEF files, did not seem to have come over with the import. Are those xmps of no use anymore? Do I delete all the xmps and start from scratch and redo all the edits I had previously done on the secondary machine? Shouldn't the xmps have just imported with the nef file? If I start working on the files on my primary machine is it creating a new xmp file for a given nef? If I delete the first xmps associated with the nefs (from the secondary machine), does that create some problem?

Can anyone clarify this xmp issue? Thanks in advance
