I have two copies of the exact same catalog, my most recently accessed catalog at 221.7MB as well as another Catalog with the same name at 220.4 MB that I haven't opened in a few months according to my mac. This duplicate copy of the catalog is actually in the backups folder, but only one of them not every backup, and not my most recent back up either. I also have a third copy of the catalog that is a ZIP file.
My question is: Can I delete the older duplicate? Can I delete the zip? Without affecting the other Catalog that is my most recent and current one.
Yes, you can delete them. However, the zip file probably IS a backup that was created by Lightroom. What is the date on that zip file?
Current Catalog Date: 2018-05-04
Old Catalog Date: 2018-04-29
Catalog Zip Date: 2018-04-12
Lastest Lightroom Backup: 2018-05-10
I will go ahead and delete the two then and hope it is all good! Thank you very much Jim
