This process is remarkably like some of the user glitches in Lightroom. A feature request takes you to the the general forum?

Feature Request

Provide a menu option to backup the catalogue. Presenting back up at shutdown is the worst time to backup. I leave Lightroom running. I manage my backups. Let me!

I agree. Having backup occur only at exit is an idiotic idea. I no longer even bother with LR backups; I simply mirror my entire LR drive in real-time to another external drive and be done with it.

Those of us who are old enough to not be iphone photographers can manage our own backups.  It would be nice if LR allowed us to do so within LR.  Leave the baby-sitting stuff to Lightroom Elements.  (Hint.)
