My main lightroom catalogue will not quit - I always have to do a force quit (Lightroom not responding message in Mac OSX)
Unfortunately all of my recent back-ups of this catalogue have this same issue. I should have got onto this sooner as it has been going on for a couple of months and I just put up with it.
I have tried re-installing lightroom, optimising catalogue ect but still the same problem. It only happens on this catalogue, I can open and close Lightroom without any issues using other catalogues.
Anyone have any strategies for fixing this?
Mac OS 10.11.1; Mac Pro(late 2013) 64GB RAM, Lightroom CC 2015
<Now Lightroom will not be able to find the catalog and will ask you to create a new catalog>
If working fine, Use Import from another catalog to import the images from the previous catalog.
I think I have narrowed it down to a corruption in a particular catalogue or file that catalogue is referencing. It is a bit of a pain as it is my main working catalogue with years of work.
When I try and export this particular catalogue as a new catalogue it quits part way through with an unexpected error. When I try and import this catalogue from a new catalogue it gets so far and then just hangs.
The only solution I can think of is to try and export the catalogue in smaller chunks so I can narrow it down to the offending part or file the catalogue is getting stuck on. Unless someone can suggest something else I could try?
