I cannot open an .lrcat file that I was working on last week (however I am able to open other catalogs). The file is on my laptop harddrive, as are the linked photos.
I use LR Classic CC. (the version with the mountain backdrop!)
I tried opening the file from Finder (which is what I typically do) and it just says Application Not Responding. And, I then I opened LR from Applications, then tried to open that particular file and, nothing. Again, Application not Responding. I also tried restarting the computer.
I use a MacBook Pro, macOS Catalina 10.15.3. 
I would be grateful for any help! Thank you.

In the folder that catalog is in, did the lock file perhaps not get deleated when lightroom closed (occurs if improperly closed like a crash)

Hi David. Thanks very much for your prompt response. I moved the .lock file (never noticed it before) to the Trash and tried to re-open the .lrcat file but nothing happens when i click on it. Again, i look at LR icon and it says "Application Not Responding". This is weird. The catalog was working fine last week.

 

I must point out that last May when i first created the .lrcat file, some similary-named catalogs appeared in the same folder as the .lrcat file, but with "sync-conflict" in the name. I never deleted them.

The catalog was Catalog_May2019.lrcat and in the same folder i found Catalog_May2019.sync-conflict-20190714-125936-STBQ6KM.lrcat and Catalog_May2019.sync-conflict-20190725-112007-STBQ6KM.lrcat

 

Any other ideas?

Thank you, Steph

Since you are running Catalina, check the Lightroom settings in the new "security and privacy" system tool.

 

What happens if you start Lightroom from the desktop icon instead of Finder?

Hi. Thanks for your response. When i start Lightroom from the desktop icon instead of Finder, it opens to a different catalog (a default catalog). I click 'Open Catalog' and try to open the catalog in question. It prompts me with 'do i want to relaunch' with the other catalog, i click 'continue' and again, nothing. Application Not Responding.

 

I'm looking for the he Lightroom settings in the new "security and privacy" system tool that you suggest.... haven't found it yet (sheepish)!

i just recalled that Adobe asked me to create a new password this past week.. I did - but didn't go into LR since. Could this be a reason?

Thanks!

Cyber Security in MACOS Catalina, specifically Application rights.

 

Outsude of Lightroom, in your MACOS, bring up System Preferences, select Security and Privacy, select the Privact tab. Scroll fown to Files and Folders. Fir Lightroom Classic, and while you are st it, for Phitishop, make sure all bixes (drives) are checked.

If you save photos in the MACOS folder Photos, scroll up to Photis and fix that foe Lightroom and Photoshop
