    Lightoom 2015 version backup problems


      I have imported around 40,000 images from My Pictures into Lightroom & it appears that everytime I backup Lightroom it duplicates & triplicates my images & takes up massive hard disk space - soon i will run out. Please tell me what I have done wrong.

          Lightroom doesn't hold any images. It simply makes links in the database (catalog) to the files on your hard drive or external hard drive.


          Lightroom only backs up the catalog, usually on exit or in accordance with your preference settings. The catalog file is quite compact and the backup is a compressed zip file.


          Are you using some other program to backup your image files.
