    How do I backup complete photos and catalog to external drive?

    Mrsfolsom Level 1

      I want to backup my whole LR library to an external drive for safety. I want the backup to include the photos as well as all metadata. I cannot seem to do this, and I cannot find a similar question/answer on the forum. I am able to "Export" photos to my external drive, but the metadata file that gets exported is illegible.

       

      Please advise me how to do this simple and necessary procedure. Thanks in advance.
