Sorry that Photoshop Elements 2020 crashes when you try to take a backup. Do you have any USB hubs connected? Or any external disk drives connected to your system? If so, try disconnecting those drives, reboot, then see if the Elements Organizer will allow you to create a new album.
Also, does this happen with all catalogs? Or if you created a new catalog do you see the same crashes when creating a new album or backing up?
Hi - I am having the same problem as the above user. Brand new laptop, just purchased Elements. My Catolog is cover about 600GBs of pictures. When I try to back up to my external Hard Drive, it gets all the way to "please wait while Elements Orgnaizes prepares for backup..." The App takes a few minutes and then becomes unresponsive and crashes. I have tried pointing back up to an external hard drive (my preference) and the laptops own hard drive. I have tried shutting down and restarting.
Any guidance for a fix? If I can't back up to an external drive, also seems to defeat the issue of creating a backup.
