    Import still crashing after all these weeks

    mmilich

      Latest LR release still crashing intermittently when importing. Using a Mac, importing to MacHD from Nikon D750, external drives attached with older catalogued items  on them, 12GB memory.

      Had intermittent success in the past with this version.

      Didn't try to import for several days, kept monitoring forums for resolution.

      This morning tried to import - thumbnails came up- beachball starts- available memory goes to crash point. Force quit LR.

      Restart LR- start import- no thumbnails- beachball starts- available memory goes to crash point. Force quit LR.

      Restart LR- start import- thumbnails- successful import.

      Watched memory usage using "Memory Clean" through all three attempts- one thing I noticed was that the first two times the App memory usage started climbing and then the compressed memory usage started climbing. Compressed memory usage increased until the LR crashed. The third attempt App and compressed memory usage stayed moderate.

      Any ideas?

      Thanks.
