Hi,

I'm a recent convert to Mac and have started opening my Windows created catalogues on the MacBook. As this is a recently new resubscription, the lrcat files need upgrading.

As the photo filesystem has changed since my last subscription, I'm forcing LR to Synchronise Folders.Within a few minutes this causes Finder to lose the SMB shares, it moves into a state of "Connecting". I can force a restart on Finder and some times it may eventually come back for a few minutes, maybe not...

 

LR is the only application causing this issue, I've had the MacBook for a month or so and have never experienced this with anything other than Lightroom - anyone seen this before?

FYI I've confgured Max of SMB3 and Min of SMB2 on the NAS.

I also have a Synology and I recently read this: https://mariushosting.com/connection-problem-between-synology-nas-and-macos-catalina/

I'm not sure what OS you are on but thought this areticle might be helpful.

Thanks for this, i'll certainly keep this in the bag for later. I found a work around, it was less than ideal but worked.

1) Open the LR Catalogues on the Windows PC (wired to the LAN) and generate sync the catalogue with the file system.

2) Move the catalogue over to the Mac (running Monteray)

 

It seems ok to sync minor changes, it just seems to lose the plot where lots of photos are concerned.

 

Many thanks for the feedback.

YW - I think that working with both mac and windows platforms adds a level of complexity. I recently upgraded to a 16" M1 mbp and thought there might be an issue with Monterey and M1 working with my Synology. The Time Machine backup took a couple of days to get sorted out but I left it plugged in so it could run uninterrupted and all connections are back online and working as before. If you keep the connections from going to sleep that may help.
