I'm running the latest version of Lightroom on a fresh OS X yosemite system. Imac primo 2009 with 8 GB, newly installed SSD drive. The system only runs Lightroom no other apps.
The catalogue is on the internal SSD, photos 45000+ is on a new usb 3.0 external drive (but only connected to a usb 2.0 port, since there are no usb 3 on my imac)
I'm trying to build previews of the catalogue. Have tried 1:1, smart previews and regular previews.
Lightroom crashes during the process.
Can anyone help me with hints to what the problem might be?
Is the system too slow? Can force Lightroom to use less power during build?
What exactly do you mean by LR crashes?
Normally LR builds previews when the images are imported and will create previews on the fly once the current import previews have been discarded after a specified period of time.
I suggest you try selecting only a few images, 100-1000, at a time and then try building previews. Or simply forget about building preview and let LR do it on the fly when you view an image or group of images.
Your iMac is now 7+ years old. Did you clean out all the dust when you installed the SSD? Maybe it's time for a new computer.
Thanks for your reply.
I could be time for a new computer
