Photos have read-only access
I upgraded from Photoshop Lightroom 5.7 to CC subscription Lightroom Classic 8.2.1.
My images are stored on internal hard drive.
With Lightroom 5.7 I have no problem to write metadata into photos. However, when I try the same with Lightroom classic 8.2.1, I'm getting error - photos have read-only access.
But when I check photos, the check mark for "read-only" is unchecked.
Permissions - I'm the only user (administrator), and all of principals (windows 10) have full access to image files.
After trying a lot of things (changing permissions, installing/un-installing lightroom, creating new catalogs, ..) I finally figured out what is the problem:
My image files are on virtual drive. I created virtual drive using DOS command "subst" (historical reasons; subst 😧 G:\...\....\....\Photos ).
Lightroom 5.7 doesn't have any problem with such created virtual drive, can write metadata into jpg files, but Lightroom Classic (newest version) can't. Always getting message "Photos have read-only access".
If I dismount the virtual drive and point the Lightroom Classic 8.2.1 catalog folder to the real location of photos, then the metadata writing works.
So my questions are:
I have the same problem, no idea how to fix this
I also have trouble with this.
Two year old posting with no solution, Original poster may have fixed or moved on, who knows.
No idea what the Operating System is for any of the people posting.
Please post your own problem. When you do include the following:
