Lightroom Catalog gets corrupted when I swap SSD into my other editing computer.

Recommended Posts

I have 2 identical computers with the same Lightroom running on them.

I usually work on my home computer editing wedding photos in the morning. When I need to go to the office I take my editing SSD drive with me and istall it into my other PC. This is not an external SSD but a regular secondary drive I insert into the computer and close the housing.

Every time I swap the SSD drive the Lightroom catalog gets corrupted. The backup copy works so I use that all the time but the main catalog is corrupted.

My question: Why does it create a problem that I remove the SSD and insert it into another computer? Both computers has the same processor, motherboard, etc. I make sure I completely shut down the computer before I remove the drive.

Any ideas????

Sounds like you have metadata that gets saved somewhere else (besides the removable drive). This can happen when the app stores config information alongside the OS, vs. on the disk that the app is actually installed on.

Are the images and the catalog stored on the removable drive?

There may be a config option within LR to set this, so you choose the removable disk. 

BTW - You never have two "identical" computers - the operating system will always uniquely identify the machine it is running on.
