    Changing and replacing hard drives without getting catalog errors

    rsmithdigital

      Every year I archive my hard drive that I import all my photos on and replace it with a new one. I need to delete 2014's Catalog Database in order to avoid the catalog error when I try to open Lightroom after I switch drives. I import my raw files and save me edited files on this same drive. So when I replace the drive, Lightroom complains that it can't find the catalog and will not finish opening. I want to avoid the reinstalling of the application.

       

      Will deleting the catalog help me correct this?

       

      Thanks in adavnce,
