How do I fix the crypt unprotectdata in Lightroom 6? I looked at previous threads and the only advice I saw was to delete pertof the preferences file. One person said that after they deleted that part of the file, they lost some of their photos. I don't want to risk losing mine! !Is there another way to fix this problem?
Well we don't need to delete the complete preferences file.
Make a copy of the preferences file before you make any changes to it, just for the back up
1) Close Lightroom
2) Open up your preferences file in notepad:
C:\users\USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Preferences (in Windows 7)
3) Delete the following keys. Find them by searching for “export.email”
["pw_pw_com.adobe.lightroom.export.facebook_com.adobe.lightroom.export .facebook_1462068433Key"] = "AQAAANCMnd8BFdERjHoAwE/Cl+sBAAAAdUMU.........qAAAABAAAADplLE740dKWYP QsWhXy6HDAAAAAASAAACgAAAAEAAAAHcIKRNCHbMrYTlEF1NkPiNgAAAAQZXSdYJ/Rn/V/ iT7f6NbYuWcXMZoF+Tsq7FYmPwa/rgeNpM0ivh0ORw+0Cf79UJZ0iI4..........ACeA0 0GwYQ8ysXk/F+dL7HgW30m3",

4) Open Lightroom
and try again.
