My lightroom backup folder never has the correct year.  The year on the folders is 2022.  How do you change that.

Do you mean the folder that is created every time you do a catalog backup when exiting Lightroom? If so, the folder name should be in the format "YYYY-MM-DD HHMM", and that date and time is derived from the date and time in the computer at the time of making the backup. So if the year is wrong, that implies that the system date is set incorrectly.

Or are you talking about a different "lightroom backup folder"?

Does it end with that number or start with it? If it ends with it that is the Hour and the Minute the backup was done in 24 hour time speak. 10 22 PM.
Or as stated above your system clock is set wrong. Or you have a Time Machine.

Have you checked the system date?
