I fired up LRC and it would not start, finally it said it couldnt find the catalogue. I freaked.

i have a time machine backup.

i do remember when it updated the new version it said it saved the old catalogue somewhere or that i would not be able to use the old catalogue?

I dont remember where the catalogue folder is.

What can i do?

 

can i recover the catalogue from time machine? What files do i need? I dont have to restore the entire snapshop shot right?

 

sorry i have had such a rough time with my imac in the last month.

You DO want to use the one with v10 in the name. You can do this by double clicking to launch it. If that's not the right one, you can go into Lightroom Classic, and choose File > Open Recent... and you'll see a list of the most recently opened catalog files.

Do a search for the suffix of the catalog ".lrcat" (without the quotes). That's your catalog.

 

I'm guessing that when the catalog was updated, it put it in a location different than where you had yours from before.

 

Please note that wherever you put the catalog, keep it there, do not move it around in your Finder/Explorer. It's critical that LRC knows where the catalog is and if it was moved, LRC has issues. So just find a place you like and keep it there.

THANK YOU. I couldnt find it....I am thinking the V10 in the lrcat name is because it was updated.

At this point I do not want to use the catalogue without the v10 in the name even though it is a larger file? right?
