Backing Up a Catalog
After you have worked with photos and media files in the Organizer for a while, it’s important to backup the catalog, so you don’t lose any information if you have problems with your computer. You can backup the currently opened catalog to a CD, DVD, or hard drive location. Photoshop Elements uses a wizard to make it easy to perform a backup.

- If prompted, click Reconnect to locate missing or moved files.
- Click the File menu, and then click Backup Catalog to CD, DVD or Hard Drive.
