When I backup upon exiting Lightroom I get this error message:
We are sorry, Lightroom was unable to backup the catalog named "Lightroom 3 catalog"
You may wish to check folder permissions or available space.
After the failure message I check the location of the backup and get that it was modified today despite the error message.
there is plenty of space on this HD and the permission are r-w-x for all users and the message appears on another external HD with even more space.
I optimized the catalog today 'successfully' but then needed to repair the catalog before re-opening.
I have 10 years and 40,000 images in this lightroom catalog and I am VERY concerned, please help!
Please try to change the location of the backup folder.
May i know does your Lightroom catalog is in pictures Folders.
It backsup to an external HD to folder called lightroom backups. I tried backing up to a different external HD with the same results.
