    Creating a catalog using an external drive


      I am using LR6 (Windows). I am trying to explore the option of outsourcing my processing work (weddings).

      To date i have used the one catalog that LR automatically sets up. This is on my internal hard drive and my folders are all on my external hard drive.

      I need to get the catalog in the same folder on the external drive.


      I keep getting an error message when trying to create a catalog using the external drive - "Lightroom cannot create a Catalog on network ......., LR Catalogs cannot be opened on network volumes, removable storage, or read only volumes"


      Please can someone help solve my problem?
