I need Help... Sychronize Folder Issue... LR Classic CC on a Windows 10 System is not responding during Sychronize Folder process, this issue is totally new for me (didn't happen before). All possible updates are installed, including the Latest LR Classic 8. This issue does not happen all the time, after a few tries, it works, but no clue yet in what is causing this . It happens also with previous version, I know it is not LRCC 8 related.

Does the folder being synchronized reside on an external hard drive?

A Preference File will survive a Lightroom uninstall/reinstall. Sometimes weird behavior is corrected/cured by resetting the preferences. 

Reset Procedure:

1. Close Lightroom.
2. Hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom. 
3. Overwrite the Preferences when prompted by the dialog.
4. Close Lightroom.
5. Restart Lightroom.

Does the behavior continue after resetting the preferences?
