1  Software Discussions / Lightroom / LR crashing on: July 18, 2011, 04:36:42 PM
When LR 3.4.1 is rendering Previews on import and when I switch catalogs, it crashes regularly. I haven't seen anything helpful on the Adobe forum.

Anyone having this problem? Fixes?


Thanks

2  General / General Discussion / Changing Date Created on: May 17, 2011, 08:01:08 AM
I'm just back from a trip to Austria and find that I forgot to change the camera to local time before I started shooting. Is there an easy, way to do a global change to Date Created (+6 hrs, in this case) or, maybe more important, is it even worth doing this?

Thanks

Back when iView went off the grid and Microsoft offered EM to users with an iView license, I downloaded the EM dmg. I never migrated to it, though. Last month I decided to make the switch, loaded everything up, plugged in my iView license number and was using EM. I thought that was the end of it, but now it's telling me that my 30 day trial is over. Did I miss out on a free upgrade by not doing this sooner? I THOUGHT it was supposed to be free. ?

Thanks

Thanks, Peter.

Have I mentioned lately how much I love bootable cones?

Thanks for this. I had a gut feeling that the CCC idea wouldn't do it. When you refer to "migrating the data from the primary drive" are you using the Archive and Install option in the installer?

I will look for that.

I was thinking that I could use CCC to move all of my apps, etc. onto the main drive after a clean install just as I would use it to restore something that had become corrupted. I hope to get some other input about that here.

Thanks

I'm upgrading a G5 to Leopard from Tiger. I have a full, bootable clone of the current HD. I'd like to do a clean install of Leopard. If I do that, can I use Carbon Copy Cloner to move all of my apps, etc. back from the boot drive or would I have to install everything separately? Would it matter that the boot drive has Tiger on it?

Thanks...before I shoot myself in the foot.

Thanks, Peter - I'll look for that option before continuing to convert.

Actually, now I see that what LR has done is create a DNG from each CR2 and xmp pair and just added it to the same folder. Now I guess my question is whether to select all CR2s and xmps from the folder and trash them.

I used a different workflow on a job recently, importing CR2s into LR before converting them to DNG. I just used Library>Convert Photos to DNG... on a folder of adjusted files and I see that LR converted the CR2s and left xmp sidecars. Is that the normal behavior? Any reason why I couldn't toss the xmp's now?


Thanks

Thanks, again. That took care of it.

Thanks. I had it set for "Local Volumes". I'll try it again.

13  DAM Stuff / Migration Issues / Chronosync question on: January 18, 2010, 03:56:11 PM
I'm using Chronosync to move files from a 250GB drive to a new 1TB drive in a Burly box. I got this message after an overnight process:

"An error occurred
The operation failed because the user does not have the correct access to the file: /Volumes/Originals_02/.Trashes"

I checked ownership of this volume through "Get Info". Read and write is selected. I searched the volume for a folder named Trashes - there is none. After aborting the transfer, I saw that only 32 of 45 folders were transferred and they aren't sequential, i.e. I have folder 1, 3, 4, 6, etc.

Any ideas?

Thanks

14  DAM Stuff / Backup Strategies and Tools / Origs and Origs-BU differ on: September 22, 2009, 08:31:26 AM
I just noticed that there is more space used (around 5 Gb) on an "Originals" external than there is on the corresponding "Originals - BU" drive. What would you do in this case? Figure that stuff happens and spend your time better elsewhere or try to see what's different? If you would try to compare to find the differences, what's the best approach? Is there some software that will do this and flag the differences?

Thanks

Peter

Yes, I purged Prefs, Cache and Workspaces by way of the Option key at launch of Bridge. No help there.

New user did not help. I used Chronosync to move Bridge from my boot drive and that did not help.

I'm thinking to delete Bridge files and to use Spotlight to ferret out files I can't think of and reinstall from the disk. I'll see what happens then.

Thanks
Peter
