Marb Posted October 4, 2021 Share Posted October 4, 2021 (edited) I have Lightroom 6 on my windows 10 pc (originally running on my older win 7 pc) It has been working fine on this pc for 2 years but yesterday, when I tried to open it it just hangs with the blue swirling icon. I couldn't even shut the pc down. I hadn't changed anything, no updates, windows etc BUT at the same time I was opening Speedfan (checks your core temp) and that also hung at the same time. After re-booting the pc, Speedfan works fine but Lightroom no longer opens, it just hangs endlessly until I "end task" in task manager. There is no logic to why this should suddenly stop opening, and I don't have any recent catalogues backed up for this year as I had set LR to write data to the RAW files in their folders. I have rolled back windows to an earlier date (usually always works for issues) but to no avail. Even tried program compatibility troubleshooter but that didn't resolve it. It seems a file in LR must have become corrupt ? but I don't know where to look. I have mirrored this drive (cloned) so maybe drag and drop the files over to replace and see if that fixes it but I don't want to lose the edit data attached to my 2 years worth or RAW files. To make it more complex, I still have LR 5.7 on this pc but that hasn't got the latest features I need. Its a mess and I would appreciate any help from someone with much more knowledge in this area than myself. Thanking in advance.
