Are these virtual copies of the same file?

I have been trying to duplicate your issue but cannot. 

1. In Lightroom CC2015.6, select Three Images
2. Edit In>Photoshop CC2015
3. Interrogate the three images in Photoshop using File>File Info

All three images retain EXIF and IPTC metadata. 

What are your Photoshop and Lightroom versions? What are the types of files you are sending that lose metadata?  Can you give me an example of a Metadata field that disappears?

I try to simulate now, but yesterday I made the updates for Photoshop and Lightroom, and this not happen anymore.
Problem solved with the Lightroom 2015.6 and Photoshop CC 2015.5.0 version.
Thanks!

Rick Flohr actually If I open all the files with the option "Edit Original" the metadata already on files only appear on the first file, from the second to others all the fields are empty. But if I choose Edit a Copy with Lightroom Adjustments or Edit a copy works.

That is a good piece of intel! I will do some testing.

I tried it again,

Select Three Tiff files previously edited.
Edit In> Photoshop
Choose Original from the subsequent menu. 
Three files open in Photoshop
Inspected Metadata including Camera Info, and IPTC in all three files using File> File Info...  
Metadata was there for all three files. 

I still cannot duplicate.
