Explain in detail what you are trying to do? Full details of your operating system, what version of Lightroom. Was the program working properly prior to the problem you are experiencing. e.g are you opening the Lightroom application normally, or are you double clicking on the Catalog file to open the program. Are there any error messages?
I have Windows 7 Home premium, Lightroom 5.6 64bit The program was working
properly till a few weeks ago. At that time I was not able to get my
files. There was the little question mark on them. I have three external
drives with pictures in them. H and G drives all have question marks as to
the location of the original pictures. I drive which I share with a laptop
where it work just fine and had been working fine now I can no longer
access Lightroom 5 Catalog on it.
I noticed two or three days ago that when I opened Lightroom it opened
another Catalog Call Lightroom Catalog 2. So when I tried to launch
Lightroom Catalog 5, I get the long rectangular bar with the message
"Lightroom - Opening Catalog: Lightroom Catalog.Ircat". But it never
opens. The message just sits there. There are error messages. The
external drive with Lightroom 5 Catalog.Ircat continues to work fine on my
Your help is much appreciated.
What are the error messages?
