I am not able to import images from my SD card; I see gridview grayed out saying Preview unavailable for this file.  I did a LRC upgrade and that did not fix the issue.  Using Macbook Pro Monterey OS. Please help.

Thanks!

Cheryl

LR makes extensive use of the /TEMP folder during import and other times. This is why I recommend keeping ~100GB of free space on C:\
