Lightroom Cloud and the name of the drive where the originals are stored has changed issue

So not a bug (i think)

Using Lightroom Cloud across MacOS and iPads. I have the option to store the originals locally as well as in the cloud. I am storing them on a NAS drive and there's around 120k photos. All was good.

 

NAS lost a drive so i had to do a rebuild and the name of the new volume is slightly different to what it was before. Stupid mistake but it's done.

 

So I open up Lightroom and change the preference to where the originals are stored but on opening Lightroom wants to check all photos. Fine but this issue is that it never gets past photo 1. If i don't mount the drive lightroom is fine.

So i am either stuck for what could be an eternity waiting or is there something else i can do? All masters are in the cloud and what's on the drive is exactly what was there before.

Any ideas?

The sledgehammer approach is to delete that folder and have lightroom download all the masters again. That might actually be quicker but wanted to throw this out there first...

 

thanks
Paul

I have not tried this; but it was suggested on another thread for a similar problem and seemed to work.

Go into Lightroom, turn off keep originals locally. Restart Lr. Enable keep originals locally and point to the new location. Restart Lr.

 

Good luck.

Nice thought but didn't work. As soon as i repoint to the actual folder of master that check process starts again. It seems like it is doing something but 1 image per half hour. That works out to nearly 7 years worth of checking for the whole set. 

 

Annoying to say the least. I may have to just bite the bullet and pull them all down from the cloud

thanks for replying though!

One image per half hour sounds like a problem. It should not be that slow. I do NOT know what Adobe is comparing, but Adobe downloads all the meta-data for the images, and compares the meta-data to the local file, and if it matches, Adobe will not download the file again.

 

I would suggest doing some file/drive tests outside of Lr to start with.

Yes, well outside of LR all is good. This is running an SSD RAID 6, so very low latency and i can get up to a GB/second over a 10gbe network.

I've had sporadic issues with LR over networks in the past. I don't know what it's doing but it's the only application that i do have trouble with. Once set up and working it seems to be okay but takes some time.

For example, reseting prefs and then needing to Forget the volumes. The forget stage just hangs, needs a few goes to get it to forget properly. I'm reseting back to start and then will allow it to download the originals. This takes a while but is faster than 7 years...!
