I have a new laptop which has been set up initially in the computer shop. I have 2 drives C the SSD drive and data drive D
My Pictures [where lightroom catalogues are saved] is now on the D drive so they are not recognised when I open Lightroom.
I have tried many things and watched videos etc but no luck. How do I tell lightroom that the catalogues are now in D drive?
Can someone help please
Can you clarify something please?
The pictures are on D, but used to be on C. Is that the problem? (I ask because you state that "the catalogs are now on D", which is something different). So please clarify what is the actual situation.
Pictures on D can be fixed via these instructions, particularly Figure 4 and associated text. Adobe Lightroom - Find moved or missing files and folders
Catalogs on D shouldn't be a problem at all. Just double-click on the catalog file.
Thanks but I meant that the catalogues were on the C drive in the Pictures
folder. now the catalogues are in the D drive as the Pictures folder has
been located in this drive
I have my photos on an external hard drive so no problem there, its the
catalogues I cannot access
Find the catalog file on the D: drive (it's name ends with .LRCAT) and then double-click on it to open it in Lightroom.
Thanks I ihave managed to open the catalogue
