Find the folder in your operating system that contains this catalog file. In that folder, there should be a file whose name ends with .LOCK (might be lower case letters). Delete the .LOCK file. DO NOT DELETE ANYTHING ELSE.

 

Also, uninstall/re-install never fixes catalog problems and so is not necessary and a waste of time here. Also, uninstall/re-install never causes you to lose your images or your work.

My catalog used to be in date order individual folders, now it would apperar that all photos are lumped together ?

Is there a way I could organise these in year order as it was before with dated folders ?

 

Its not the end of the world but annoying.

Not sure why you say it is not organized in folders now. What happens if you click on the triangle next to Folders?
