    Well, I have an entire studio and imaging area to install since I moved…that will be keeping me busy. So far I’ve successfully downsized from a large commercial studio to a smaller “fine art” studio (I used fine arts in quotes because while I’ll still be able to set up still life shots and shoot portraits it’s a tiny space by comparison!

    My daughter and her cat have come to live because she lived in a large condo building that reportedly had people exposed to to the Novel Coronavirus and she didn’t want run the risk of A) being exposed or B) being quarantined in place in her condo. The city of Chicago, like New York is trying to be proactive short of what the bay area is ordering “shelter in place”.

    So, in the meantime I’m trying to find places to store imaging/photo equipment I didn’t shed :~)

    I’ll post pictures of the new place when it’s done…the image below is likely the last photo taken in my old studio.

    So, I was able to find a home for the printer…the fine folks from Latitude came and got it for their nonprofit community digital lab here in Chicago. And the cool thing is I can go visit it any time I want :~) In addition to the tax break I’ll get for the donation, Latitude has a drum scanner that I’ll be able to use to scan some of my large format 8×10 chromes! So, win-win…

    Re: How Many LR Catalog Backups?
    Reply #4 on: December 26, 2019 at 6:55 pm

    If you are using a utility to create real time backups of apps, data and image files, saving a Lightroom catalog backup is redundant and therefore pretty useless. As to why they don’t have a limit to the number of backups, that feature was an early feature that has proven to be generally useless therefore not worth spending any further engineering time to modify it.
