Hi, I'm owning my license for LR6. I have now changed my computer discs to get more storage. I have installed LR with my license number, and it opens fine, but I can not open the catalog I used before, and can't reach my work.

The catalog path has the sme name as before, but LR just tells me to imprt, which I will not..... 😞

I will, immediatly as I have LR up and running, go for a subscription , but have to get this working first...

Can someone please help me?

The catalog path might be the same as it was previously. But is the disk name or drive letter where the images are stored the same as it was previously? Have you simply double-clicked on the existing catalog to see if Lightroom will start and open that catalog? It sounds as if Lightroom opened and created a new empty catalog.

Can you post a screenshot of the storage destination of your .LRCAT catalog file?

What are the error messages you see when it fails to open? (please post that also if you can)
