    LR Quit Unexpectedly; Backup greater than 4GB


      I have a late 2013 version 27" iMac with a 3.4GHz Intel Core i5, 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 memory, and 1TB HD and running OS X El Capitan V10.11.6. When the iMac was purchased in 2015, LR6 standalone was installed. Four days ago, it seemed to have a catalog corruption so uninstalled LR and then reinstalled (there was an issue doing so but LR Tech Support eventually resolved so have LR6.8 in place). All photos are stored on a 3GB Western Digital My Book external hard drive with the catalog saved on the iMac internal drive. Each time I Quit Lightroom there is a large Problem Report popup indicating that LR quit unexpectedly - how could it when I selected Lightroom/Quit Lightroom?


      In addition, I have set Backups for each time Lightroom is exited and I receive a popup indicating the catalog size is more than 4GB and a 3rd party extractor is required.  The size of the file Lightroom Catalog.lrcat per Mac Finder is 510.3MB so why is there this popup?
