Is that all the message says??
What is your OS and where is the catalog stored???
Using an external GTech drive for LR catalog and raw files.
I fortunately back up each time I close LR, so I used the last backup and was able to load the catalog. Looks like the last import didn't make it, but I recovered the files from the camera card.
Looks like I am ok, but it is unnerving to say the least. I'd love to know what caused it, so that I avoid the minutes of terror before I figured out the work around.
Backup, backup, backup.
Thanks for responding, Geoff.
That sure sounds like an OS level error then. It is funny that the files didn't make it from the card to disk.... this is down by the OS rather than Lightroom and one would expect even with a power cut to not lose them all.
So I am wondering if they are somewhere on the disk anyway, just that the back up didn't have them??? Was there any power down during the download??
Another point is I would recommend moving your catalog to a different drive which will improve performance markedly.
