After the update to version 2015.12 LR crashes when importing pictures from any network share. The same pictures on a local drive works perfect.
If I watched the task manager I can see LR is allocation memory until no more memory is available - then it will crash. This process needs hours. I tried to import 300 jpeg/raw (10GB) and it needed about 12 hours until it crashed. My computer is quite fast (i7 8CPU @3.2G). The CPU load is approximately 12% ... very interesting. I don't know what LR it is exactly doing. It does almost nothing on the disc and the GPU and Network load is also very low.
I tried this on a different computer with a completly different Hardare, especially another graphic card (not ATI) -> same result. I also tried differnet grafic cards (Intel HD, ATI Radeion, Gibabyte NVidia) ... in the past I had some issues with ATI
Network Share: mapped drive from Windows Server 2016
Client OS: Windows 10 Build 1703 64 bit
Well, this sure sounds like a network problem to me. There's no reason for Lightroom to take hours unless the network isn't working as it should.
It worked without any problem before the update to the new LR version. A network problem is not possible. I tried it at home an in the office. Same result.
