Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Backing up the catalog, part of Lightroom 5: 1 Organizing Your Photos.
…When you update any of the information about your photos…in Lightroom, that information is saved in the Lightroom catalog.…And as a result, the Lightroom catalog is…a very important collection of information about your photos.…You therefore want to make sure that you always…have a current backup of your Lightroom catalog.…If you have an overall backup system that…backs up essentially all files on your computer and…all storage devices, then you may not need…to back up the catalog directly from within Lightroom.…But it's always a good practice to ensure you…have a backup of the Lightroom catalog at all times.…
You can adjust the frequency for the backup…of Lightroom's catalog within the catalog settings dialog.…To access those settings on Windows, you can go to the Edit menu and…on Macintosh, you can go to the Lightroom menu and then choose Catalog Settings.…On the General tab you can specify the…frequency of the backup for the Lightroom catalog.…In this case for example, I've specified that I'd like…to back up the catalog once a week when Lightroom exits.…
