Hello,
Newbie to the forums here. I am in a bind. My Lightroom5.2 catalog is corrupted, so it tries to repair. Then, it will say, "Temporarily unable to repair corrupted catalog." So I click exit. I have never had this problem before, so I do not know what to do. I am attaching a screenshot. Can someone please help? I have about 20,000 images on this catalog, and unfortunately, the last backup is from Oct. 2020. I am using Windows 10. I am not computer-tech savvy, so please help. Eternally grateful.

Thank you. My last backup is Nov 2020. I am desperately hoping my corrupted one dated June 2021 can be repaired. I have the catalog in a zip drive that can be emailed if anyone can please take a look. Unfortunately, I just don't have enough tech background/familiarity to be able to do this. Many thanks.
