Hi guys,

-  I recently opened Lightroom and due to the update a new copy of Lightoom Catalogue was created on my desktop under the name "Lightoom Catalog-2-v10.Ircat" which worked fine.

-  I did some work and uploaded some new photos and then Lightroom Crashed due to an empty battery.  When I re-started Lightoom it didnt restart with the new copy and suggested I again I make a new copy which was called "Lightoom Catalog-2-v10-v10-2.Ircat"

-  But this catalogue "Lightoom Catalog-2-v10-v10-2.Ircat" doesnt have the new images I uploded and the work I has already done.  Now I cant locate the catalogue "Lightoom Catalog-2-v10.Ircat".

-  I have already searched this and found some info about the LOCK file which I have located on my Desktop and already moved to file" Lightoom Catalog-2-v10.Ircat.Lock" to the trash bin and permanently deleted it but still my Desktop is still not showing the orginal catalogue "Lightoom Catalog-2-v10.Ircat" and I cant locate in anywhere using finder.

 

 -  I have Quit lightoom using Task Manager and restarted the Macbook but it still doesnt appear.

-  Can anyone help my locate this Catalogue "Lightoom Catalog-2-v10.Ircat"?

 

-   is it that by creating yet another copy "Lightoom Catalog-2-v10-v10-2.Ircat" by accident I have somehow overwritten this file and lost the work I did and the images I uploaded (I still have these on the SD card thankfully).

Thank you in advance for any help!

Tom

Sorry and just to add if I try to open the orginal catalogue file "Lightoom Catalog-2.Ircat" it asks me to create another copy which would be called "Lightoom Catalog-2-v10-v10-3.Ircat"

Use your operating system's search feature to find the catalog you want, as you clearly know the name. Once you find it, double-click on it.

Thank you replying.

It turns out I have overwritten the last catalogue by accident and its not possible to revert back.

Look in the Backup folder for a recent LrC V9 catalog backup.

The upgrade process does not delete or over write those.
