Unexpected Error opening catalog after computer crash

My Macbook crashed last night and since restarting my computer several times I get an "unexpected error opening catalog" message whenever I try to open my most recent catalog on any version of Lightroom. Unfortunately, I don't have a backup of the majority of the work I've done in the past week, so I am really hoping to access the catalog. Any help would be much appreciated!

"Unexpected error opening catalog" usually means a corrupted catalog file, and its not hard to imagine that your crash has something to do with this.

 

I would definitely use the most recent backup you have. I would also try placing the unzipped backup on a different disk, as your primary hard disk seems suspect at this point.
