I am stuck. I want to create a new catalog. When I try to do so, I get an error message that states the c:\user\rick\pictures\various refers to a location that is unavailable. Well I can find that file but what do I do with it? I have tried dragging and dropping into Lightroom, but theat doesn't work. There must be something that I need to click on or type or whatever, but I don't know what to do.
Please quote the exact error message, word-for-word, verbatim.
What is your operating system?
What version of Lightroom?
Any chance that the folder you are picking to put the new catalog in already has pictures in it? Most likely catalogs and pictures cannot share locations.
