    LR6.6 will not import photos


      I have read many discussions on this topic but none seem to help.  I have LR 6.6 on a Win10 machine (12GB memory, at lease 200GB free disc space) and it will not import photos.  The current catalog has about 35,000 images.


      LR loads fine, but as soon as I click File>import it goes into unresponsive mode.  If I wait 5 to 10 minutes it will sometime come back, but if I then click to open source file folder it goes away again for another 5 to 10 minutes, and will do so with every simple attempt to access a source folder.  I have tried everything I have seen on various forums including removing and reinstalling, deleting preference files, optimizing catalog, disabling GPU. creating a fresh catalog and importing my old catalogs into it.  Nothing helps.  As it is, LR is completely unusable.  What can I do?
