Restore as above, with one extra step- LR now puts catalog backups in a .zip file. You will need to extract the catalog ( .LRCAT) from the zip, then copy as instructed.
Thanks for the 'heads-up', I forgot that
Thanks for the insights. I was going that direction when I encountered continued degradation of performance in my ext. HD. Turns out now I have some bad sectors that are now prohibiting drive recognition. More than just a catalog issue. I was able to extract my most recent backup file. I have a new ext. HD that will be made into my main drive from my mirrored backup drive. Hopefully I will be able to apply my backed up catalog file to things when I'm done.
