Because of the disk space on one of my drives I moved my LR catalog files to a different hard drive.
When I started LR an error came up that it couldn't find the catalog, which was expected. I clicked on "choose a different catalog" button and selected the catalog in the new location. I also enabled the check box that said "Always load this catalog on startup".
The issue is that it always tries to locate the catalog in the original location even though I selected the catalog from the new location and said to use that on startup.
When LR starts up when I select the catalog from the new location everything is fine.
When in LR I go to catalog settings and it has the catalog in the new location.
Try double clicking the catalog in the new/current location to open Lightroom in that way and see if it sticks...
LR opened fine clicking on the catalog in the new location, but it didn't stick.
That did the trick - thank you.
