    going to upgrade from 32 bit win7 to 64 bit win7

    89 red baron Level 1

      going to install win7 64 after formating c:\  which now has win7 32bit and backing up.

      will my catalgog and everything with lr5.6 be safe?

      tired of out of memory message after editing and exporting images.

      thank you if you can help.

          I upgraded from 32-bit to 64-bit Windows 7 a little more than the year ago. Only I purchased a new computer and installed Lightroom, my old catalog and supporting files, as well as all of my images. I experienced no trouble whatsoever. The images went on a differently identified internal drive, and I had to point Lightroom to the appropriate folder. But that was effortless. I suggest that you have your images organized so that they are all within as few main folders as possible. It will make any reconnecting much simpler.
