    preview cache and needs to quit

    georginasmith

      I keep getting the message: Lightroom has encountered an effort when reading from its preview cache and needs to quit. Do you know what to do?

       

      Thanks,

          Yes - delete your-catalog Previews.lrdata folder in with your-catalog.lrcat file.

           

          Delete the whole .lrdata folder, and nothing else (e.g. do NOT delete your .lrcat file) - if all goes well, it should start right up after-wards .

           

          Consider doing Library (menu) -> Previews -> Build Standard-Sized Previews to re-build lost previews, or just let them be rebuilt "naturally".
