Hi! I have imported files directly into lightroom and at the import option chose my external hard drive. The hard drive on my computer needs to be wiped out now and they are saying I will have to reinstall lightroom. The only place those photos are saved is in lightroom backup catalogue. Will my files still be there if I reinstall? Or are the lost?
The files will be there, but you'll need to make backup copies of the Lightroom catalog onto the external hard drive. Go to Catalog Settings, and in Backup, choose When Lightroom next exits'. Quit Lightroom. In the Backup dialog choose your external harddrive as the backup location. You can run this backup from the External too, so all your settings are safe.
Hi Sean is there any possibility of me talking to you on the phone?
