    Where do I relocate seven preference files from LR onto my new laptop

The backed up Preferences folder holds seven files and I'm unclear where they all get moved to (see jpeg attachment) on...

    Lightroom 5.6 won't import .mov video files from my Nikon

    Hi Victoria, Thanks for your reply. I am trying this right away. I rebooted yesterday (sometimes weeks pass by before I reboot my Mac machine) and downloaded the latest 5.7 update, which will be installed this morning. Rebooting and updating will likely clear up the .mov import problem. Best...

    Corrupted catalogue help request, screen shot included

    Hi Victoria, I zipped up the catalog yesterday (Jan. 15) and sent it to you via Dropbox. I used We Transfer, said it would take 5 hours to upload; wasn't sure it ever made the journey as I received no feedback from the We Transfer site thus far. Thank you and other forum members for all the...

    Corrupted catalogue help request, screen shot included

    Thank you for your reply, I tried to do this with the catalogue, but I get a dialogue box with a warning. Right clicks or selections don't produce much of anything at all. All folders are frozen or behave strangely. Perhaps the problem cannot be resolved...? McPhil

    Corrupted catalogue help request, screen shot included

    Thank you for your reply, I may try this. When I make the new catalog and import the troublesome LRCAT into it, how would I leave out the LRDATA preview file? Should I rename the preview file, or do something else to it so it won't get imported? McPhil
