Hi there,

I recently bought a new iMac and moved everything over from my old one using Time Machine.

I am having some issues with LR. Everytime I open it, I get "The Lightroom catalog cannot be used because the parent folder "Volumes/Firafly 1TB/Late 2019" does not allow files to be created within it.

Please either fix the flder permissions before continuing or choose a different catalog" 

I can not seem to find a parent folder or permissions. 

Any help would be appreciated.

So, Catalina

 

Outside off Lightroom, bring up your MAC's System Preferences. Select Security and Privacy , Select the Privacy tab. Scroll down to Files and Folders. Make sure that Lightroom Classic, and while you are at it Phtoshop can access all.
