    Lightroom 5.7.1 - Unexpected Shutdown on Import




      I'm a product photographer using Lightroom 5.7.1


      My work computer is a 2.7 GHz i5 Apple iMac with 16GB 1600 Mhz DDR3.


      Lately (last two-three weeks) Lightroom 5.7.1 has been unexpectedly shutting down on imports. Prior to attempting to import I notice that the Import Window will display ALL photos as importable, even photos that have already been added to my catalog. Closing out of this instance and opening the Import window again (cmd+shft+i) will remedy the issue, highlighting only photographs that have not been added to the catalog, but in almost every instance, after the images are imported Lightroom will shut down unexpectedly. Upon re-opening Lightroom my catalog will not show the newly imported images until I re-synchronize the folders.


      Anyone experiencing similar issues? It's very frustrating with no discernible cause that I can tell (in that nothing in my workflow has changed)
