I updated to the latest version of LR recently and have had issues with it being slow and crashing ever since. I posted recently that I had no previews on recent imports but I resolved that by optimising the catalog. This morning I sat down to work and my catalog was extremely slow. I restarted my machine a number of times but LR remained unuseable. Then it crashed and said the catalog was corrupt and needed repair. After 30+ mins I was told repair wasn't possible. I backup every night so I copied the backup from my EXHD and opened it instead. It was slow but working. I optimised it and when it finished it was still slow. It now crashes after a few minutes of being open and now it won't open at all. This is a vital catalog and the only backup I have is the one I already tried to work from. Help!!
Have you tried disabling the GPU in LR / Edit / Prefs / Performance - uncheck Use Graphics Processor
Yes. But my RAID until just crapped itself so maybe the problem is worse than I thought. I'll report back once I have that sorted.
