I recently upgraded to Dropbox Plus. I use Adobe Lightroom 6. Since my upgrade I have been having problems with it. I go into the program and it is very clunky. After a minute or two I get the message: Lightroom encountered an error when reading from its preview cache and needs to quit. It will try to find a solution to this problem next time it opens." Then it closes down.
Then I notice that Dropbox has started a syncing operation with about 11000 files - which I think is probably my pictures.
I go to my Web Dropbox and when I click on Deleted Files I see that Dropbox has deleted the preview cache. I restore the deleted file and the syncing operation stops and I am up to date.
Does anyone know what is going on here?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for your interest in my problem.
I have closed the Desktop App (ie I have clicked on Quit and the window and icon have disappeared).
Lightroom now seems to be working more smoothly and has not displayed the error message or closed itself down.
Does that help diagnose the problem?
Thank you very much Lusil. That seems like a very practical workaround.
Just for the sake of completeness: is it possible to change permissions in my Dropbox account somehow so that this would not be necessary?
