Corrupt Lightroom Catalog? Fix It Here.

September 20, 2011 | By | 2 Comments

Have you ever gotten the dreaded “corrupt” error message when trying to load your LR catalog? Have you run the built-in “fix” option that Lightroom suggests before it drops you out of LR? Has it worked? It’s never worked for me.

Well, here is the missing recovery method, the one that Adobe should, but doesn’t, share, at least not in any way that I could find on the Adobe support page.

Huge thanks to Simply Ness, who has provided this simple step-by-step process to recover your corrupt Lightroom catalog.  It’s slightly geeky. But if I could figure it out, so can you.


  1. Thanks a lot, I really needed to do this, wish Adobe WOULD PROVIDE THIS.

    All of that up there is crazy confusing and the last time I tried to do something like this myself i deleted all of the content on my website!! 🙁
