So I have been using Lightroom since version 3. For some reason my backups have created new folders for every new update.
Bizarely my version 6 is now backing up inside the version 3 folder, so how do i organise everything into one back up, in one place, in one folder for ever more?
If you have converted your earlier catalog with each LR update you will already have a combined or master catalog. You can safely delete all the old backups and keep those from the last few weeks.
You may wish to create a new folder for future backups each time you quit LR. Place it on a separate drive and point LR to it, next time you quit.
