Hi,

 since LR Classic CC 7.x I can't add a folder (like D:\RAW) which contains more than 1850 images. If more images than 1850 then LR crashes.

If I use Files -> Import LR is working.

 



In LR 6. all works fine. In LR 7.0 and above chrashes.

 

Will there be a fix?

 

Regards, Stefan

Stephan, 

I haven't seen any other reports of this.  Can you give us some system information?  Does it happen with all drives?  If the folder being added is not at the root-level of the drive does it still happen?

Ok. That is a Windows dialog suggesting a non-responsive app. If you leave it sit for 15 minutes or so after checking the Wait option, does it ever come back?

No. I've running it over night for about 16 hours. LR didn't come back

With LR7.4 on Windows 7 I tried this with folder of 1915 jpegs.For the 1st test after selecting the folder to be added the import screen opened in 'add' mode but all I got was spinning circles instead of the photo thumbnails.I force quit LR after waiting a while and deleted .lock file and tried smaller folder then same
folder again. This time both folders populated the import screen with thumbnails.So was only able to create problem the one time.

?? I do not know if this is related or not or if I accidentally triggered something while getting LR to respond,  but after I did the first force quit of LR then Windows started adding all 1915 images as a desktop wallpaper slideshow. Since I had jpgs in this folder it succeeded but I but Windows may get stuck if these were RAW files? Again may be unrelated but was still weird thing to happen during the test.

This seems to work ok on MacOS 10.13.6 and Lr 7.4
