I have a new mac laptop with LR 5. My old mac laptop had LR4. My files and catalogs are on an external drive. I have a 'master catalog" folder, which contains a subfolder' Master catalog2". I never experienced problems opening this on LR4. I cannot open this in LR 5 and get the following error message: The LIghtroom catalog cannot be used because the parent folder (names location of master catalog) does not allow files to be created within it. Please either fix the folder permissions before continuing or choose a different catalog" How can I fix the permissions? Do I need to be on the old computer and/or using LR4 first?
Permissions are on the new computer, you need to change the permissions to write permission
