I recently switched to using Lightroom CC. Can I delete the files for Lightroom 5 files now?
Also, what is the ‘Lightroom Catalog.Ircat-journal’ file? And the ‘Lightroom Catalog.lrcat.lock’ file?
If you are happy with the way LR 6/cc is working, and you have migrated your LR5 catalog(s) to LR6, then you can delete the LR5 catalogs and their preview folders. I would recommend saving a copy of the LR 5 catalogs just in case.
The journal and lock files are stuff you should not play with.
Joe, Lightroom CC appears to be working OK. I did not consciously ‘migrate’ my LR5 catalog to LR6. Could it have occurred automatically? I will indeed save a copy of the LR 5 catalog and leave the ‘journal’ and ‘lock’ files well alone.
