this just started, when trying to open the program it says " Lightroom encountered an error
when reading from is preview cache and needs to quit. Light room will attempt to fix the problem
the next time it launches.
I tried trouble shooting, I tried opening it under administrator, I tried restarting my computer and still it will not open without the error,
Using windows Explorer or mac Finder, go to the folder containing your catalog (*.LrCat) file. In that folder is a folder with a similar name as your catalog, but ending with "previews.LrData". Delete the "previews.LrData" folder. Delete nothing else.
Restart Lightroom and let it recreate the previews.
There are two folders ending in Previews.lrdata
one says, lightroom 5 catalog previews.lrdata
then the other says
Lightroom 5 catalog smart previews.lrdata
what one would I delete
Thank you for responding!!!
Got it, THAK YOU SO MUCH!
almost had a panic attack!
