We Simplify The Technical!

  • Did your Lightroom Classic catalog get corrupted? Joe Fitzpatrick shows us how to restore your catalog from a backup in this short video. He also teaches how to find it on your Windows or Mac computer.
    • Locate the backup catalog. Default backup folder location is:

    Windows: \Users\[user name]\Pictures\Lightroom\[catalog name]\Backups\

    Mac OS: /Users/[user name]/Pictures/Lightroom/[catalog name]/Backups\

    • If you have stored the backups in another location and don’t remember where do a search for lrcat orzip
    • When you have located the Backup folder open it and select the most recent backup.
    • Unzip the file by double clicking it, Mac, or right clicking and choosing extract all, Windows.
    • Copy the unzipped catalog file to the folder that contains the corrupted catalog file, replacing it.
    • Double click on the file to open Lightroom.
