LR catalog refuses to make workable copies.
error message: Catalog cannot be opened due to unexpected error
Is there any way around that? It was working fine then I moved several folders from the main drive to the external HD and saved again. I have had trouble with this drive over the winter though. the main catalog still opens so far but I am worried that I have no back-up working catalog considering I lost a catalog earlier in he winter when it was residing on the external HD.
I have not made backups as such because I would always copy the catalog to the backup HDs but now those cannot be opened...
Might be time to retire that external drive and buy a new one.
By default LR makes a weekly backup of the catalog you have opened. In the Backup dialog window you can specify where those backups are located. I suggest you place them all on a Known Working internal drive and then Back Up those Backups files to a New external drive.
I have been searching on the main drive of my portable for backup folder but it comes up with nothing... not sure where to look. I have never had trouble finding backup files before.
