    Problem with catalog back up upon exit




      since about 2 weeks, my LR4 mac version refuses to back up the catalog upon exiting (it did it successfully for the last 3 months, last successful backup was on April 12, 2012.

      The backup location is on a NAS.


      The message I get is:


      Lightroom was unable to back up the catalog named “Son_Images-LR4”.

      Please check your folder permissions, and make sure that you have available space on your backup drive and main catalog's drive.

      Try Again - Quit - Choose different backup folder...



      I have tried to choose different backup folder locations on local hard disk, to no avail, so I end up quitting without doing the backup.


      Thanks for the help.
