Hi, I have been using Lightroom for years, no problems. I have recently started using a Synology NAS to cloud sync my images and catalogues. Now I am having constant corruption of my LrC catalogues. Any ideas what could cause this?

The LrC catalog can NOT be on a Networked drive. Even having the catalog on a drive that then syncs with the internet in some way can cause problems.

Since your problem started after you started usingf the NAS then the answer is simple. The NAS, some way you are using the NAS, in some way the NAS is addressing your computer, is causing your problem.

 

Start by removing the catalog from the NAS and place it on a drive internal to your omputer and test.

"I have recently started using a Synology NAS to cloud sync my images and catalogues."

 

As Just Shoot Me mentioned, LR can't access catalog files stored on NAS (though it's fine with photos placed on NAS). So you must be doing something different with your catalog files -- e.g. are you using Dropbox to sync the catalog files from a local disk to the Dropbox cloud and then Synology Cloud Sync to sync from the Dropbox cloud to your Synology NAS? 

 

While many people successfully use Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. to sync their catalog files to the cloud, you have to be very careful in making sure that, after you exit LR, you wait for the catalog files fully sync to the cloud (and back down to another computer) before accessing them on that other computer.  Otherwise, you'll get corruption.  

 

So tell us in detail your configuration.
