    Lightroom won't launch with external drive catalog

    rlbrad

      Switching computers (Mac), I updated to Lightroom 6 from 4. It opened with an old catalog that only goes up through 2013, which is on an external drive. I tried to relaunch with my current catalog, and I get a message: The Lightroom catalog cannot be used because the parent folder "/Volumes/(name)/(name)Main Catalog/(name)Main Catalog" does not allow files to be created within it. El Capitan no longer has fix file permissions in disk utility and, besides, this catalog is on the same drive that the older catalog is on. Any ideas?
