Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to delete a catalog in Lightroom?

It is safe to delete this folder as long as its name matches the .lrcat file name. If you delete a Previews folder that's still needed by a catalog, Lightroom Classic will regenerate it when you work in that catalog, but it will run more slowly until the previews are rebuilt.

How big is the Lightroom 3 catalog file?

I decided to copy both the catalog file itself and the preview files (folder Lightroom 3 Catalog Previews.lrdata ). I've been really astonished about its size and the number of files it contains: it's nearly 3 GB and contains over 40.000 files for a catalog that contains about 8.000 photos.

Why does Lightroom slow down as catalog sizes get larger?

Let me be clear, Lightroom will slow down as your catalog sizes get larger. So, if it isn’t just imperative that all of your images exist within a single catalog, then it’s good to have independent catalogs for every event that you’re working on. That way, each catalog file and each event is always running at its optimal speed. 9.

How big is a rebuild of Lightroom previews?

When you rebuild previews, Lightroom will make new files from the original images. In my case, this reduced the size of the previews from ~300GB to 65GB in one catalog, and ~300GB to 125GB in another. (The different results to due to the number of files in the catalogs and preview settings).
