Lightroom Classic: Freeze if external hard drive is turned off
Due to number of photos I have to use 2 external and 1 internal hard drive. While working in LR latest version 7.3, if I turn off one of the externals LR immediately freezes displaying the revolving blue circle. I can move this cursor around and the computer otherwise is not frozen but LR is dead. The only way to resume work is to use task manager to end task for LR and then restart LR. It then works fine. If I then turn the external on, all is well but once again, turning it off causes a freeze. It is not a hard drive problem because the same thing happens with either of the two drives. It seems worse recently so I tried roll back to version 7.2 and the same thing happens. Can anybody offer any insight as to whether a Windows 10 issue, a computer hardware or software issue, or while unlikely, a hard drive issue?
