When i export photos from lightroom classic and try to upload them to google drive or any other file sharing app, it says "file unreadable". I havent changed how i previously exported, and this started randomly in the middle of exporting a large group of files ...most of them worked fine, but the last few said "files unreadable", and ever since that happened i cant figure out how to get things working like normal again. It doesn't make to me, because i havent changed a thing. Any help is appreciated
Where does this error message "files unreadable" happen? Does it happen in Lightroom Classic, or outside of Lightroom Classic? Please provide the exact word-for-word error message.
This is probably file corruption caused by a hardware malfunction. It could be computer memory gone bad, it could be hard disk malfunction (that would be my first guess), it could be other things. You need to run diagnostic tools on your computer hardware.
Are you exporting them directly into the shared folder? If so, this could be an issue where the sharing app tries to share the file before it is fully written by Lightroom.
I am getting this exact issue. I thought it was an SD card issue or camera issue. I am able to send other files just not photos now.
I had this exact same issue and came upon your question. I updated lightroom and restarted my computer and everything was readable to the drive afterwards.
I've had this exact same problem, and updating Lightroom and restarting my computer seemed to be the solution too!
