You’ve received an error
message similar to this indicating you may have a malformed catalog.
Recovery steps depend upon
your Catalog’s current Sync Status.
If you believe you are
fully-synced, or if you have yet to place any assets in Lightroom Desktop, the
local MCAT file can be renamed, allowing for the sync of your catalog information
down from the cloud, restoring your local catalog.
The Lightroom catalog should
now sync from the cloud to your local desktop. This may take some time.
Checking with the Cloud icon will update you on the progress. When complete,
you will have a new “Managed Catalog.mcat” file. Retain the old MCAT file until
you are satisfied of the recovery then the Managed Catalog.old can be deleted.
If the Lightroom application is not completely synced there are two scenarios:
All original images were
imported from Lightroom Mobile, Lightroom Web, or were synced from Lightroom
Classic as Smart Previews.
Some or All original images
were imported via the Lightroom CC desktop application.
CC>Data>Catalog ID string>Originals
file and select “Show Package Contents”
Navigate to: >
Catalog ID string>Originals
Previous Edits made to
unsynced assets which are reimported will not be recoverable.
