How to Delete a Catalog?

When I enabled sync in LR, I got a dialog that reads:

"You can only sync a single LR catalog. You are currently syncing Lightroom Catalog.lrcat
Would you like to sync "Lightroom_catalog-2.lrcat" instead"

 

Will it work to use Windows Explorer and delete the catalog(s) that way? I'm just beginning with LR so I don't care if everything is deleted.

 

(I could find no current or relevant info on how to delete a catalog)

It's probably better that  you Not delete a catalog until you are certain that you know what you are deleting. First make sure that the -2.lrcat file is the one  that you want to sync, then sync it and make sure it's okay. Then you can delete your old catalog. Again you need to make sure that the -2.lrcat file is the right one before you delete the old  one.

I understand and thank you for your reply. Since I'm just starting with LR and I have nothing I want to save, then would it be okay to delete? I'm in the process of addressing other LR issues and I'd feel better starting fresh.

Got it. It's great that you can make a clean start. Go to your  Pictures/Lightroom folder and you will be able to drag the files to the trash from there.
