The exact version of LR you are using.
The OS you are using.
Check the Identity Plate and stop, Pause, any face detection, syncing or GPS lookup.
Thanks. LR Classic 7.1 (current version). Windows 10.
When I select Edit > Identity Plate Setup I don't see any options set up (is this what you wanted me to do?).
As far as I can tell face detection isn't turn on (I've never used people view) nor have I used GPS lookuop.
If there is a way to pause a sync, other than by exiting, I cannot find it (and I did Google it).
Thank you. I paused address lookup which was on. When I stopped syncing a message popped up showing me 7 files that could not be imported due to being "damaged". They opened fine for me but since they were of no importance I deleted them, in case that was what was causing the hanging at the end. I don't think it was.
I then resynced a large folder which said there were 19 new photos and it went to about 100% and just stopped there again. I stopped that sync and then imported another large folder with about 6000 small size photos. That one imported OK and is now stuck around 100% at "building standard previews". Yet CPU usage was non-existent, so I clicked on the x sign to stop it.
I'm going to import with minimal preview and see if that improves anything...
