I have issues with LR Classic CC Library crashing (Message: "LR not responding") after adding larger quantities of metadata in the DNG. The above problem started when I decided to add older pre-digital era photos. These photos have no exif or date/time/place embedded since they are negatives or slides. As a result I have to add the above metadata manually.
This was with my "old" Win10 PC a HP Z620 with Xeon processor and ample storage on a internal HDD (E:) the catalog was on the same drive. I was advised by Adobe support to move the Catalog to the C: drive and purge the cache. Give the LRcache extra Gb's (15 Gb) and leave the photos (approx: 10000.) on the E:drive.
This seemed to be working. After working some time with the data the problems re-appeared. (LR not responding) It looks like LR is locked in some kind of "loop". To get out of this loop I have to end LR forcefully by Ctrl-Alt-Del and stop LR Classic. The result is that a larger part of the metadata is lost and not added to the DNG.
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
FYI: Since the Z620 is old I decided to upgrade to a new custombuilt PC. The specs are more than sufficiënt to do PS (which works fine) and has only SSD drives. A Intel i9-9900 CPU 3.1Ghz and 32Gb memory. The issue mentioned above is still present!
