Hi guy's I had a blue screen crash dump episode yesterday while I had Lightroom open and when I got up and running again I could not get one of my catalogs to open. I keep getting a message saying the Lightroom catalog named "Landscape and Travel" cannot be opened because another application already has it opened. I cannot find any application that could be causing this. Has anybody got any suggestions
Go to the folder where Landscape and Travel is located.
There will be a file called Landscape and Travel.LOCK.
Rename this file.
Thanks a million ... It worked. What will I do with that renamed file and also the file named "Landscape and Travel" lock journal.... Just leave them there or delete ? Thanks for your help.
Orphaned Lock/Journal files are left behind during abnormal shutdowns. They can usually be deleted without consequence. Only do this with Lightroom closed however.
