I've just upgraded to Elements 2022 and I wanted to backup the catalog structure as I'm totally fed up with re-tagging photos. I would have done a full backup previously if it didn't include the actual photos.

When I select the Backup Catalog option from the file menu it quite happily goes through both steps but when I click the Save Backup button it pops up a "Please wait whilst Elements Organizer prepares your backup..."

I've left this running overnight to no avail.

My catalog is around 26k photos and 2k videos with some tagging but nowhere near to what I used to have after destroying a previous catalog during a migration between older versions.

Thanks for any assistace
