Lightroom freezes at "moving your photoes" upon startup

Versions: Lightroom 4.2 latest, Windows 10 pro latest.

 

A couple days ago, I imported a lot of photoes and Lighroom quickly overflowed my SSD unexpectedly. Therefore, I decided to move the Lightroom cache to an HDD.  


The next day, this began to happen, as whenever I start Lightroom, it starts moving photoes and permananely freeze at photo 0 / xxx. This is extremely annoying. With this popup in place, I was not allowed to perform any actions, only receiving a warning sound, unless I choose "Stop Until Next Time" and give myself the hassle for the future.

 

What I have tried: 

  • Uninstall Lightroom
  • Uninstall Lightroom clearing all settings
  • Deleting the whole Lightroom cache folder
  • Recovered the Lightroom cache folder
  • Performed another Lightroom cache move to another drive
  • Performed a third Lightroom cache move back

None of these would remove this failed move. 

 

Why is it so stubburn? I don't care even if it deleted all these photoes since I have a copy in Microsoft Onedrive, but I need an option to ignore existing errors and carry on.

 

Thank you.

Serena

Well, I inspired myself when I wrote "I don't care even if it deleted all these photoes" and it was actually the only way to remove the error. I permanently deleted all Adobe cloud photoes and the error is now gone.

Corrention: it's not "Lightroom cache" but actually "Lightroom originals".

I first exported all photo originals. Most of them already have a backup at Onedrive so there weren't so many left behind. 

Then went to Lightroom web, clicked portrait on the top-right corner, Account Info -> Delete Lightroom Library. 

 

This removed the problematic library as a whole.

 

Than I re-imported and re-synced the photos. That took me a whole night.

thank you. I did that. These files are driving me crazy. I have realized i should not put ANYTHING into OneDrive that is already on some other drive, like Lightroom, iTunes, iCloud. It duplicates duplicats. iTunes is even worse than LR because once you put it into OneDrive, you can't get it out.....at least I cant.
