I always back-up my catalog to one hard drive within my tower computer, which was the first drive to hold Lightroom 2008-2012.
In 2013 I started storing 2013- 2015 photos on a second hard drive, but have still been backing catalog up to first hard drive.
I'd like to have a few copies of the catalog for obvious reasons, so is it OK to alternately switch between 2 different HDs on the same tower computer when I back up or no?
I seem to remember hearing we should keep catalog on original destination disk as first set-up and don't want to mess anything up.
Would it be better to keep catalog on original 2008-2012 data drive and occasionally save on an external LaCie instead?
Also the catalog is saving but not the previews -- do previews still save in LR 4.4, or that was in older versions?
I don't care so much about previews but noticed they weren't saving.
super thanks, Teri
AFAIK, the previews were never saved--LR has always been able to re-create them when needed..
Sure, you can have your catalogue backups anywhere you want, although you really should have them on a different physical disk from your catalogue. The easiest way would to always back up to one place, and have your standard system backup program include that place when it does its periodic backups
thanks so much Hal!
