Currently using Lightroom version: 6.7
Lately, bad issue with corrupting catalogs that can't be repaired or fixed. So I keep loosing work that I just did because I didn't do an immediate backup (as I usually backup every few sessions). I will be working, close lightroom, reopen a few hours later and it's dead.
The note: Catalog is currupt and cannot be used or backed up until it is repaired (which never works).
Before, I could delete certain files that would allow the catalog to open... But now, that's a lost cause. Nothing works.
What can I try here to prevent this from happening? No issues with anything else else on the PC, except Lightroom at this point. Could I try to send the catalog for repair to Adobe? If so, how do I go about that? This has happened three times recently. Been using LR for so many years, no issues until recently.
If the catalog keeps becoming corrupted, that would seem to indicate a problem with the hard drive and folder where the catalog is being stored. You might consider moving the catalog to another drive or folder and see if that fixes the problem. I don't think Adobe has any provision for fixing corrupted catalogs.
