    I'm trying to back up files to an external HD from LR, but after 4 tries, I gave up. I keep getting a message saying it could not be backed up.
    What am I doing wrong?

    I have Aperture 2, but like LR2 better..so I'm trying to learn LR2.
    I've backed up files from Aperture to my external, with no issues. So I don't think it's a drive problem.

    I'm using MAC, if that makes a difference.

    I think it only backs up where your picture folders are.

    I'm pretty sure that's not the case as that would completely defeat the purpose of a backup : if the location of the pictures were to be corrupt then so would the backup.

    I don't have acces to LR at the moment but I'm fairly sure you can choose the location of the backup catalog anywhere when asked for it.

    What are you doing exactly to back up ?
