I’m not seeing any such issues albeit on my Macbook Pro retina. Although my catalog is on the internal SSD and all images are on an external hard drive with fast thunderbolt connection.
I’m assuming that Dropbox is continually synchronizing whilst LR is writing to the catalog. That may have an affect.
The only suggestion is to test by creating a new catalog on the internal drive and see if that makes any difference.
N.B. You should also have the previews in the same location as the catalog.
Hi and thanks. I have moved all my files to an external HDD connected to my Mac via Thunderbolt. It works flawlessly. Tried importing a photo from my Dropbox archive once again which (eventually) caused Lightroom to stop responding. I.e. the problem seems to be with Dropbox and how it (assumably) continously synchronizes the files whilst LR writes to the catalog etc.
Though I have yet to try to keep the catalog and previews in a local folder, with my RAW files synced to Dropbox.
Can anyone besides med relate to this issue; with LR not working harmoniously with Dropbox?
