    Lightroom has encountered problems reading this photo. You will not be able to make adjustments to the photo

      Good day  

      I am at breaking point, desperate and need assistance.

       

      I am using a Dell laptop with the following specs-

      Windows 8.1 Pro Processor: Intel® Celeron® CPU N2830 @2.6GHz 2.1 GHz

      System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor

       

      I am using Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 5 | Build 974616 | Camera Raw 8.6  

       

      So basically I had a large catalog that I estimate had over 1000 images.

      I shoot with a Nikon D7100 (RAW format 95% of the time) with an 8GB Eye-Fi SD card.

       

      After every shoot, I would import the RAW images into Lightroom and delete the images from the SD card in preparation for the next shoot. This worked fine for almost 1.5 years with no issues until about 3 weeks ago. I opened Lightroom and ALL the thumbnails were not displaying as usual.

       

      The error read:- “Lightroom has encountered problems reading this photo. You will not be able to make adjustments to the photo”.

      When I try to import RAW images the error message I get in the previews is:- “Preview unavailable for this file.”

      I have also tried to open the files in Explorer to no avail. I have included an example of a file that won't open in this DropBox link (Dropbox - LR File Not Opening )

       

      What may be the issue? Are my Raw images corrupted? If Yes, how and why did this happen. Most importantly how do I resolve it?

      Your help and assistance will be greatly appreciated as I feel I have lost my clients files and am powerless on what to do next.

      One particular client has been waiting on me for 3 weeks and desperately needs me to deliver her pictures.

       

      Please help me in recovering these files.

       

      Thank you!

       

       

      Ddaze.
