    Repair of corrupted catalogs

    OK, yes, you are right, I just meant the latest editing status. Do I need to import again for LR to recognize that if I am using XMP and/or PNG? Thanks, Jens

    Repair of corrupted catalogs

    OK, just a little feedback on how I (didn't) solve the problem: After resetting LR, I managed to start it by doubleklicking an old catalog that I had not tried to open after the problem started. Before trying to open the "2015-2017" catalog (that was open when the computer was unexpectedly shut...

    Repair of corrupted catalogs

    Thanks for the tip JohanElzenga. I tried that but it still behaves the same way... I am clueless how to now find a parrticular photo amongst the >500 000 that I have on the harddrives.

    Repair of corrupted catalogs

    Upgraded my Windows 10 the day before yesterday and used Lightroom for the first time yetserday. No problems to open the latest catalog (named "2015-2017") and worked for a long time cataloging and deleting a backlog of work. I left the computer with LR opened during the night and it seems like...

    Can I add the negatives later if I imported a catalog without negatives?

    Hi, I didn't think of that. If I understand you correctly, you suggest to move the database from the laptop HD to the external HD and then import it from there into the desktop LR database? Problem #1 was that I didn't know what to copy (and where to find it) in order to bring over the...

    Can I add the negatives later if I imported a catalog without negatives?

    Hi again! It worked very fine, I copied the raw files to the drive on the desktop that happened to have the same drive letter of my pordable harddrive, used by the laptop. Since this isn't the drive where I have my photos, I just moved them into the correct directory from within LR. Done...

    Can I add the negatives later if I imported a catalog without negatives?

    OK, thanks Cletus. I seems like that could be what I need to do. The only obstacle would be that the original drive letter from the laptop is not free on the desktop. Anyway, I may have a way around that. Cheers, Jens.

    Can I add the negatives later if I imported a catalog without negatives?

    Can I add the negatives later if I imported a catalog without negatives? OK... I feel a bit sorry that I only visit this forum whenever there are things in LR that I don't understand. Anyway, I have searched for the answer to the above question without success. The background is that...

    unable to move photos between folders

    Doh! I can't believe I spent 45 minutes trying to figure out why the files wouldn't move when I grabbed them by their frames... I feel so silly so I hope I'm not the first to be confused by this. Thanks! Cheers, Jens.

    unable to move photos between folders

    I'm relatively new to LR and have, nonintentionally in the learning process, imported photos such that LR created new subfolders with names based on photo dates. Now, I want to tidy up and move the photos to more topically structured and named folders. However, I don't have much luck since...
