Just trying Lightroom CC and the initial import sync is taking 3 days! Very frustrating and disappointed withthis as the whole idea of the software is to manage many pictures. Reading the forum it seems that many have similar issues. I hope this can get addressed quickly.

when I imported about 350 pics (RAW) last night into Classic 7.2, I thought that LR had frozen, becuse none of the pictures appeared on the monitor. However, after a short while - a couple of minutes all pics had been imported, and a few minutes later they all had been converted to DNG. Anyway, I believe the fact that LR doesn't show the imported pics properly is a bug. conversion to DNG, however, is definitely an improvement over 7.1

This is nothing to do with the way pictures are shown it is about it taking over 3 days to import pictures into the program and then not syncing them into the cloud. The internet connection is fast and stable, the issue seems repeated across users. I hope it is addressed soon as for me right now with 18,000 pictures synced and another 43,000 to go its just not workable to move to CC

When you say "it's taking over 3 days to import pictures", is this via "add photos" or through the migration tool? Has it finished adding them all now?
