BACKING UP LIGHTROOM CATALOGS Lightroom offers the ability to make a backup of a catalog file and test its integrity. Lightroom catalog backups are done when you exit the program; you should, at least occasionally, allow these backups to be performed. During a Lightroom backup, only the current Lightroom catalog is backed up—the image files are not copied. Lightroom backup settings are found in the Catalog Settings dialog box. When Lightroom asks if you want to do a backup, you can specify the location for the backup file (see Figure 1–6).

And by doing it, I mean not only creating backup copies, but actually going through the process of restoring from your backup to ensure that you know how to do it and (more importantly) that your backups are working. People accidentally lose important computer data every day. Usually it’s because of user error (deleting something unintentionally) but equipment failure is also common. In the digital photography workflow there’s absolutely no excuse to risk losing all your work. I can’t overemphasize the need for creating a practical system for backing up your work and updating your backups frequently.
