    Question about restoring catalog in LR4

    I clicked on the LR4 icon to open it and got this message box:

    "The catalog named 'Lightroom 4 Catalog' was left in an inconsistent state. Lightroom must restore the catalog before proceeding. This may take several minutes."

    Then it takes about 15 minutes or longer to try to restore the catalog.

    The last time I closed LR it did its weekly backup. Now, this is happening when I try to open it.

    After it tries to restore, the dialog box just disappears and nothing else happens.

    How do I restore a catalog when LR won't even open up?

    Thx for the help.

    By default Lightroom stores your Catalogs in the following location C://users/"your user name"/my pictures/ lightroom.
    Could you find and open the Lightroom sub folder to display the contents on your screen. Do a screen capture of the folder and post on the forum.
    This may give info that can assist others in giving advice to correct the situation.
