I have my LR catalog on an external disk. My startup drive on my iMac recently crashed and I had to completely reinstall El Capitan from scratch. I moved LR preferences back to the new installation of El Capitan, and then opened LR. I got this error message:
"The Lightroom catalog cannot be used because the parent folder “/Volumes/Master/Lightroom” does not allow files to be created within it."
I assume this is a permissions problem that occurred when I reinstalled OS X on my iMac, but I'm not sure how to fix it?
Here are the permissions on the drive. How do I fix this?
(I am not a Mac person)
But have you checked Read/Write for all the Sub-folders in Master?
Thank you. What I needed to do is click the "gear" icon and then choose "Apply privileges to all enclosed items...". That fixed it.
