    Lightroom: Cannot use Catalog named..... because it is not writable and cannot be opened


      using LR5


      Ive read to delete the lock files and journal files. I think i did that but every time i click on the catalog, it creates a new lock file and sends me the message again.


      i tried creating a new catalog and swapping out the data folders from the old one to the new one. the catalog opened and I saw all my images with all my edits. But one by one lightroom began zeroing out all my edits so I quickly closed the program.
