Importing to LRC has come to a stand still. I was able to copy my files to an external SSD drive. When I try to import those files into LRC it says importing but it only imported 14 files in 2 hours! LRC 9.4. Sync is off. Plenty of room on the hard drives.
Thank you for the response. I think I can rule those suggestions out though. When I inserted my SD card into the reader LRC acted the same way. I used Finder to copy the photos off the SD and into a folder. When I tried to import from this folder the same thing happened.
If the Virus checker is checking the folder where the files will reside after Import, that would be the same for both the case where you try to import from camera card, and the case where you try to import from external SSD. Same applies to hardware issues on the disk where the files are written to.
