    Unlink smart preview and the original raw file to improve editing speed?

    ronze98 Level 1

      Is there a way to temporarily unlink the smart previews from the original raw files?  When I am editing on a laptop with just smart previews, it takes <1 sec to load up the image.  When the laptop also contains the original raw file, it takes >5 sec to load the same image.  Instead of moving original files off the laptop and then edit the smart preview, is there a way to tell lightroom to use just the smart preview and not look at the original raw files?  I am using lightroom 5.
