Hi everyone,
I have just installed Lightroom Classic CC on my new PC (Macbook) and copied the old catalogs I had on the previous PC (Macbook) to the default folder.
Now I see the alert indicated in the attached picture (sorry for the italian language) which warns me that Lightroom cannot write to the "User" folder for the synchronization of photos on my mobile device.
Can anyone help me solve it ??
Thanks

Hi Marco,

 

Welcome to Catalina and welcome to Permission issues. 

 

Take a look at this image:

https://laurashoe.com/2019/10/15/whether-and-when-lightroom-users-should-install-macos-catalina/lightroom-classic-compatibility-catalina-file-permissions/#iLightbox[postimages]/0

 

Now, to access this, go into your System Preferences, Select the Security & Privacy option, select the last tab, and unclick the lock on the bottom left corner using your administrative password. Then click on the Files & Folders option and check all of the options for Lightroom Classic. When you close that window it will self-lock.

 

Let me know if this works, thanks!!

 

(And your English is great!)
