    Lightroom cannot launch with this catalog. It is either on a network volume or on a volume on which Lightroom cannot save changes

      Recently my hard drive on my laptop failed...and nothing was recoverable...HOWEVER, I had been backing up all photos to external hard drives. So, I reinstalled Lightroom 5.7.1 from Adobe and am trying to gain access to my catalog but get the error:Lightroom cannot launch with this catalog. It is either on a network volume or on a volume on which Lightroom cannot save changes.

       

      How do I get my pictures back into Lightroom? I've attempted to move folders from the external to the internal...but many are CR2 files and Lightroom will give me another error saying it doesn't support those file ARGH!

       

      Someone, please help.
