    Is this a reasonable recovery plan for a corrupted catalog situation?

    russellw23208715

      Have experienced a corrupted catalog in Adobe Photoshop LR 2.

       

      Was able to recover a backup catalog but loss all keyword entries.

       

      Input some key words to determine if the catalog would be worth keeping.

       

      Relaunched the catalog and the key words were retained.

       

      Created a new catalog, entered key words and have been able to relaunch this catalog also.

       

      Ideally, I would prefer one catalog with a nice, clean startup capability.

       

      Planning to purchase the latest version of LR.

       

      Hoping to combine the backup catalog & the new catalog into one catalog for use with the new version of LR.

       

      Thus I will be able to retain my metadata and enter key words at my leisure, thus minimizing data loss.

       

      I’m open to recommendations and in particular to the cleanup & prep for the new LR.

       

       

      Thanks in advance for your help.
