My colleague sends me catalogue exported with smart previews so that i can correctly see photos and modify /select etc.
She shared the catalogue on googledrive but as i downloaded it the smart preview file (5,24gb size)was split in 3 different files (2,12 - 2,12 - 1,38 gb), so i can't see most of photos since inside the catalogue folder there is only one of those 3.
Did it ever happen to any of you? how can i solve it?
I'm using LR Classic, Imac (and mac book pro both with last OS released),
6000 photos -yes, expect a very large Smart Previews package!
My test with 6000 images went over 3GB before I interrupted and cancelled! Can't wait all day!
The two "2,12" numbers suggest that it is a Google-drive limitation on file size. (2,12 - 2,12 - 1,38 gb)
I have never had this situation, so I do not know if it might be possible to re-combine the Smart Preview 'Folder' structure.
Perhaps another way of sharing the Catalog that will allow larger files?
Does Dropbox have a size limitation?
Googly reports- "All files uploaded to Dropbox can't exceed your storage space quota. There is no file size limit for files uploaded through the desktop or mobile apps, and files uploaded to dropbox.com have a maximum file size of 50 GB."
