    Disaster has struck indeed-corrupted catalog

    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...

    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...

    Jim (or anyone who has knowledge) Hi again. My transfer continues today. The photo count continues to go up and the available space in my external drive continue to decrease but the % of Lightroom progress has fluctuated. Last night it showed 76% and now it shows 44%. Any further advice...

    I had no idea that one was so big or I definitely would have chosen a smaller one for sure. And I'm sure it will be worth it but wow.

    Hi again, Jim. I just thought I'd update you that it has been moving since yesterday! So I"m being patient. The little green box is a little over half done right now. I wish I knew for sure how much needs to transfer yet. My EHD shows 880 GB still free of the 4 TB. I'm praying to the...

    Gathering across multiple hard drives

    It's a USB 3. It isn't showing me a breakdown of what's yet to be done. It does show the folders with photos being added. And up on the left top is where it says 2 operations in progress. I may just need to be patient and let it alone? It's moving into "to be sorted."

    Gathering across multiple hard drives

    Thanks again, Jim. I have a strange thing going on. I'm moving files into a "to be sorted" folder and it seems to be taking forever. It shows as two tasks in progress: "moving and importing photos" and "building standard previews". It's been engaged for well over an hour. I don't know if...

    Gathering across multiple hard drives

    I am very excited and beginning to see a light at the end of the vast LR tunnel. Are you saying to import through LR or move them in a drag and drop or copy and paste fashion from the File Explorer area on my computer into "to be sorted?" It's hard to tell how many GB I have of duplicates...

    Gathering across multiple hard drives

    Jim, I'm using Windows 10 and definitely only one catalog. I'm not sure how to create the "all photos" folder through LR. I think that folder would be the same as my "photos go here" folder? That's where I've been importing them into up to now. I'm attaching a snip of my current structure...

    Gathering across multiple hard drives

    First, a nef is a raw file - so you found 194k of those? If you take a wild guess, how many of those are duplicates? I don't see how I could have more than 30-40K or so of original raw files. I do have some jpg originals, too, from before I started shooting exclusively in raw but I didn't...

    Gathering across multiple hard drives

    I apologize if this has been answered elsewhere. I looked for it but couldn't find anything similar although I'm sure others have struggled with it.. I have photos scattered over 3 internal hard drives, 1 external and now a laptop. I've been trying to find and import all of them. I have lots...
