I have 4 different catalogs, all on an external harddrive. I am currently trying to combine those into one "big" master catalog. Every time I try this, there appears the following message: "Right now an import out of this catalog isn't possible. It wasn't possible to create a functioning temporary copy of this catalog." (Translated from german...) This message appears immediately, it doesn't start doing anything else.
What might be the problem - and the solution?
- I'm using Lightroom 5 on Windows
- The 4 catalogs are aprox. 700 GB, consisting out of 45'000 pictures
We're really for all the trouble. Does all 4 catalogs created in Lightroom 5?
Could you please post the screenshot of the error message?
Sounds like that external hard drive may not be writable for Lightroom. And make sure it's a local hard drive, not a NAS.
