I have been using LR for years. Yesterday, my MacBook was overloaded, so I took all of my LR files and took them off the MacBook to backup drives. Now when I boot up LR, it gets stuck looking for a file I presume. It won't let me do anything because the little dial is just spinning looking for something, a file I assume.
Find the folder that contains the LR Catalog and move that entire folder back to where it was. If you want to leave the catalog on the EHD, you can also double click on that *.lrcat file and it should open Lightroom from there with that catalog.
Great advice, thank you very much
