    It says "relaunch Lightroom with this catalog? In order to use this catalog, LR must close the current catalog and restart. do you want to relaunch lightroom with F:\photo library\LightroomCatalog.lrcat\Lightroom Catalog.lrcat" Yes, I did unzip it but I really don't know what I'm doing. Just...

    Disaster has struck indeed-corrupted catalog

    Yes, I have backups, Tim. I can't seem to get the backup to work. I did spend a few hours today with Adobe tech support. Unfortunately they couldn't figure it out either. They were able to find a catalog that i could open but not my originals and not all the images. I haven't given up.

    Corruption repair or replace info

    I have a corrupted catalog. I have plenty of backup catalogs and no idea how to switch one for the other. I read the instructions in the book but I still don't get it. I'm stuck and so frustrated! I'm using windows 10 and Classic 7.5.

    Disaster has struck indeed-corrupted catalog

    I'm working with classic cc 7.5 on a windows 10 laptop. I need step by step stuff. I'm not as computer savvy as I thought I was and my brain is aging by the minute. I have tried to put the photos themselves in an external hard drive, labeled "F" on my laptop. My desktop computer has had some...

    Where is "search" in the ebook?

    I'm reading it with Adobe Acrobat on chrome on Win 10 laptop. I don't know if that covers what you need to know. I did try the Control F and that created a search box! Yay! Now to use it and see if I can actually find what I'm looking for. If there is another way, I'd love to know it, too!

    Where is "search" in the ebook?

    I thought I had used a "search" feature in the Ebook version but now I can't find it. Did I dream that up or can I just not locate it?

    Gathering across multiple hard drives

    Louie and Jim, I will definitely pull smaller chunks! I actually didn't know (although I should have) that that drive was the one containing the most photos. I can get another new hard drive by next Wednesday for sure but hopefully before. I may need to ask how to implement the backup but...

    Gathering across multiple hard drives

    Jim, to respond to your suggestion re catalog backup on my laptop--the drives from laptop and desktop are not connected at this point. Also I can't locate the "all photographs" spot, although I do know how to sort using metadata.

    Gathering across multiple hard drives

    I have been backing up the catalog regularly and it is in my external hard drive. The catalog setting show that it is in there. I can take a screenshot of the "tobe sorted" folder. And yes I have put all the images into that one folder from the one internal hard drive labeled in my system as...

    Gathering across multiple hard drives

    Hi again, Jim. A new issue. My desktop stopped working and I was forced to do a hard restart. :( I have no idea what damage that caused, if any. I am showing 78219 photos in the To Be Sorted Folder. I"m hoping that means that I have those to work with to put in the structure that I wanted...

    Gathering across multiple hard drives

    Okay it shows 384 GB with 90K files in the new "to be sorted file". I'm sure I did check no duplicates but that makes me wonder. For a while, I took RAW + JPEG. That could be some of it. I knew it was messed up... :( Sorry but one change has happened: It has progressed from 44% to 47% on...
