I am running Lr Classic. "8.4 Release". My catalog that has all of my pictures, and that I have always used on a daily basis, will not open. What is the issue?!

I have another question, when I downloaded a catalog file with smart previous on my windows PC it will automatically show this (a smart previous-v11)

But when I downloaded the same catalog file with the smart previous on my MAC. Only the catalog upgraded to v-11 and not the smart previews which I'm thinking that's the reason why when I tried to open the catalog, it shows file not found. Do you have any idea how it works with MAC?

@Danica22144838tv4b Why are the filenames changing? That looks like the source of the problem. I suspect you have some kind of sync problems going on. That's not a LR problem.
