    Problem with merging catalogs

    fcukn12075629

      Hello,

       

      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?

       

      Background info:

      - I'm using Lightroom 5 on Windows

      - The 4 catalogs are aprox. 700 GB, consisting out of 45'000 pictures
