my lightroom 5 has an issue reading the preview cache and won't open. I dumped the program and reloaded only to have the same problem. what is wrong and how do I fix this. It keeps noting that it will attempt to fix this problem the next time it opens. but it doesn't . sometimes my program just stops working. what s up with this?
