I received a new computer this weekend. Is it possible to setup Lightroom like it was before?
My new computer has a bigger hard drive, which is where I intend to have my pictures. I currently have my old hard drive in the new computer but it's the "G drive" instead of the "D drive" so the file path is broken in Lightroom. I haven't been using Lightroom very long so I'm a newbie. I mainly just want my Collections and keywords back.
Here are the instructions for moving Lightroom to a new computer
Part 6 contains information about re-linking Lightroom to the new G drive.
I keep getting an error when I click on my backup.
"Lightroom can not use the catalog named "Lightroom Catalog" because it is not writable and cannot be opened. This could be cause by incorrect permissions or because another Lightroom application is using the catalog. You may try to correct the problem or may select a different Catalog".
I can not figure out a reason for this error.
You have to change the permissions in your operating system on the Folder that contains you catalog file. It must have WRITE permission.
