Image file "cannot be found"

I am a very simple user of Filemaker Pro 16, meaning I have 4 databases for my artwork, one for each medium, each with only 7 text fields and one image field (if that's what it's called). I upload the images from my computer hard drive, using gif files. Suddenly, a few days ago, about 3/4 of the images disappeared from my Drawings database, with an error message in the field saying "The file cannot be found", with the name of the file. Ooof. I tried restoring, but it said nothing was wrong with the database. Does this mean this database is hopelessly corrupted somehow and that I have to start over with it? or can I re-add the images and it'll be okay?
