I'm running Lightroom 6.8 on OSX 10.11.6 on a fairly new iMac. I am also using a Drobo 5N for my images, and so, when deleting an image, I get the standard message telling me the image cannot be moved to Trash, ans asking me if I want to permanently delete it. I can successfully delete a single raw ORF image from an Olympus OM-D E-M1. When I subsequently attempt to delete a second such image, (Remove Photo - Delete From Disk), Lightroom continues to show the deleted image in whatever module I'm in, and will not allow me to select a different image, effectively freezing Lightroom. If I try to change modules at that point, I get a message that Lightroom encountered an error while trying to change modules.
My only recourse is to shut and restart Lightroom. At that point, the deleted image is gone, and I can successfully delete another image before Lightroom freezes again. Anyone else seen this issue?
Do all of the images in your catalog reside on your Drobo? What happens if you delete an image that is stored on your local drive? If Lr doesn't freeze up in this scenario then it might be an issue with the Drobo, cable, config or other.
All images reside on Drobo. No problems deleting one image, or one set of images. However, it always freezes when teying to delete a second image, or second set of images.

You are probably deleting images while you are in the Develop module. This is a bug in the .8 release. Switch back to the Library module to do your deleting of images.
