Lightroom catalog backup reminder
Have you backed up your Lightroom catalog recently? I've encountered too many folks recently who have run into problems with a catalog but never made a backup while it was still in good working order. If you don't backup regularly, you might want to take a moment right now to do the following.
- Launch Lightroom.
- Press Alt+Ctrl+, on Windows or Option+Cmd+, on Mac to open the Catalog Settings dialog.
- Click the General tab.
- Set Backup catalog to Every time Lightroom starts.
- Close and relaunch Lightroom.
- When Lightroom relaunches you will first see the Backup Catalog dialog. Click Choose and designate the location you want the backup saved to. I suggest chosing a different disk than the one your working catalog is stored on.
- Click Backup.
