I've been subscribed for over 2 years now and have never been able to make use of Lightroom Classic. Every time I try to import more than a handful of folders worth of photos it just freezes up. I have tens of thousands of images from over the years but the most I've ever been able to import has been perhaps a thousand before it just freezes, and even then it takes up to an hour just to import a couple hundred. I'm using the add option so I don't know if that makes a difference. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling - more than once - before anyone asks.
This has happened on 2 different laptops by the way - I expected it with my old one as it didn't have enough RAM, but I kept lightroom in mind while buying my new laptop. Despite that it's still unusable for my needs...or anything to be perfectly honest. It also freezes every time I try to use to stitch panoramas. I'm doing them in photoshop now, but from the few times Lightroom hasn't crashed I know it's better for this than Photoshop. Please help.
1) Some system info would help. Click Help --> System Info in the LrC menu bar, then copy the contents and paste the first 30 or so lines back in a response here.
2) What type of images are you trying to import?
3) Are there any video files in the folders you're trying to import? If so, try deselecting them on the Import screen or move them out of the folders temporarily before starting the import. I have had issues in the past where problem video files would hang an import.
