Could you please check and see if there are a lot of files in the Cache.
How to Clear Cache Files on a Mac Manually
To clear your user cache, browser cache, and system cache, do the following:
Open a Finder window and select “Go to Folder” in the Go menu.
Type in ~/Library/Caches and hit enter to proceed to this folder.
Optional step: You can highlight and copy everything to a different folder just in case something goes wrong.
Go into each of the folders and clean out everything.
Note: We recommend that you remove the insides of these folders, but not the folders themselves.
Now, repeat the same steps above, but substitute…
~/Library/Caches with… /Library/Caches
Do you want me to clean out Adobe Lightroom cache files ?
There are very many camera raw files, and, also many lightroom Cmaps. very many.
If you are serious this will take a long time.
I am a photographer, not a techie.
Just lightroom folders or all Adobe cache ?
Yes , you may Trash all of the Cache.
I am trashing the contents of Velo now
Now media cache contents
Now Adobe Raw cache contents
Not doing more than that. At least for now
I am not too happy with the second deletion of OSX caches.
There is no Adobe stuff visible there, and there are no folders
Are you sure ??
ok, and then please try to work in Lightroom and see if you still get the same error.
You may leave the Cache in System Library.
OK I've just successfully burned my slideshow two times without a problem.
Lightroom used real memory max 18% and virtual memory less than 4GB. The biggest consumer of resource was amecommand at 2.42GB.
So good fix Tanuj, well done.
1 When is Adobe going to address this catastrophic recurring problem?
2 Are we supposed to rummage in the cache folders all the time.
Thanks again Tanuj.
Sounds good, I will surely pass it on to the team.
If this or another post helps resolve your issue, please take a moment to come back to this discussion and mark the post as Correct or Helpful. Doing so greatly benefits your fellow users
I am certainly not going to mark the reply as correct, even though, luckily, the agent's solution was helpful.
A successful dirty work around was set out above, but am not happy at all to go into system areas and to delete stuff in the cache. What if that goes wrong, where does that get me ?
This response was a lot more helpful than the last crash, when the Adobe agent advised me to find an Apple store in order to have the memory leak stopped........
I am paying a license fee for LR but LR does not run correctly and without serious faults, which seem to propagate from the slideshow module.
This creates very serious disruption to my productivity.
So I would like to know when Adobe plan to fix this and I request that a responsible person from 'The Team' please post a response on this forum asap.
