    Lightroom cannot use the catalogue named lightroom 5 catalogue because it is not writable and cannot be opened

      Please help!

       

      I've been struggling for hours to open lightroom. My computer shut off for no reason and then I went back into light room and had the following start up message:

       

      Lightroom cannot use the catalogue lightroom 5 catalogue because it is not writable and cannot be opened.

       

      I have tried everything I can. I have searched online and have deleted the 'lock' files from the catalogue folder. I have done the obvious and restarted everything. I have checked 'permissions' and nothing has worked. Please help. I JUST finished edited 1000 images and I need to export them. I am going to cry if I have to edit them all again
