    Catalog no longer opening


      I export my catalog's & raw files straight from Lightroom onto 3 external HD's. One of which is my working drive & working catalog.


      This afternoon I had just about finished my latest wedding ready to deliver tomorrow when I had to close down the catalog to run an export from another. When trying to open the first catalog, I am now getting the error message "unexpected error opening catalog"


      This obviously is not ideal. Whilst I do have full backups of the RAWs on several devices, I don't have a recent backup of the working catalog.


      I have not experienced this issue before and was hoping someone might have an insight into what the problem might be ?


      I have not yet played around with it out of fear of doing any long lasting damage.


      Thanks in advance.
