I can not import an exported catalog after updating to MacOS Big Sur. The export process is ok but importing as a catalog doesn't work. The files are not imported. I end up doing this manually.
I export on my Macbook Pro and then import on my iMac. Both are updated to BigSur 11.1 with no isssues.
What version NUMBER of Lightroom Classic?
What is the exact unedited complete word-for-word error message?
Why did you upgrade your Mac OS to Big Sur?
Was the Mac OS that was on your computer broken?
Sorry, but I don't see how asking about the motivation for upgrading an OS is a relevant (or even a terribly polite) question. People have lots of reasons for upgrading.
Are you implying that Lightroom Classic is not compatible with Big Sur? Or that there are pertinent unresolved bugs on Big Sur? That would be the useful information to share, but I have a MacBook Air running Big Sur and LRC 10.1 has no obvious problems there. FWIW, at the moment I have serious problems with LRC 10.1 on my Mac Pro desktop running Catalina, but I don't think upgrading the OS will fix them (seems like a hardware issue in LRC).
“The images appear but without content.”
Can you show us a screen capture? Include the screen capture in your reply by clicking on the "Insert Photos" icon. Do not attach files.
Again, I ask for a screen capture.
I attached some screen shots but they don't seem to go thru to the support community
Is that correct, that you have Users/johnlgardiner/Pictures twice in your folder path? How does this folder appear in your operating system? Can you show us your operating system showing the full path and one of these file names?
This was another attempt. Screen shots of the library file folder tree and finder. Only the folder was created in Library and there is nothing in Finder.
Youd didn't answer the question. Is there really a folder path in your operating system with TWO consecutive Users/johnlgardiner/Pictures?
In your operating system, under Pictures is Users. What is under there?
So you have a catalog on two computers, catalog in internal drive. Trying to work with old catalog on new computer.
So catalog exported/imported
What about photos?
Remember, the photos are not in the catalog.
Did the catalog export 9nclude optional w/pictures?
