    Lightroom stripping Exif data *from my original jpg* on import.

    samm42129549

      If I import a jpg that has an xmp file next to it, Lightroom deletes a ton of data *from my original file*.  For me this is unrecoverable data loss.  Lightroom version 5.7.  Everything with an X below is deleted.  Why is Lightroom modifying my original, and how can I get it to stop?  Thx.
