export catalog stuck in the middle during file copy?


Jul 15, 2009
I have a catalog of about 5000 images in about 5 different folders. I was trying to export 3 of the folders into a separate catalog using 'export catalog' function. I have tried it three times now and each time the process is stuck in the middle (about 30-40%). I m on LR 4.3. Just curious if anyone else has experience the same?

I've heard of it getting stuck on an odd photo in the past - I don't suppose you can see whether it's always getting stuck in the same place?
