    Where Does Lightroom Store  Catalogs, Previews, and Backups?

      1.   By default, where does LR store:

       

      a. Catalogs (.lrcat)

       

      b. Previews (.lrdata)

       

      c. Backups of Catalogs and Previews

       

       

       

      2.  Can these locations be changed?

       

      2a. If so, how does one specify where LR will store each of the above?

       

       

       

      3. Is there a specific relationship of location the Catalog, the Preview, and the Backups, or any partial combination of those three,  must remain in?

       

      3a. If so, what is/are that/those relationships?
