While trying to clear out space on my macbook I deleted my old lightroom catelogs.

I saved the latest version but now everytime I open lightroom it's completely empty.

I've retreived my latest catelog and loaded new photos in.. saved the catelog again and then when I re-open it's still empty and I have to open my last saved catelog again. 

Did I delete something that was a necesity by accident? I can't keep saving whole catelogs to my computer everytime I use it!

Use your computers file browser to search for .LRCAT files, do others exist? Is LrC creating a new catalog each time you launch LrC? If another LRCAT file exist, what happens if you double click on that file?

In LrC, Preferences, in the General tab, what do you have selected for Default Catalog?
