LR Classic 7.3
Operating System
Windows 10
I have now had two instances in the last 2 days in which LR classic 7.3 has crashed, or hung up ( a better description).

I cannot even come close to a guessing at a cause or even commonality.
In both cases I had been editing for a while, and had been passing files back and forth to Photoshop.
All was working smoothly and quickly. I also had Chrome running. And I left LR & PS running with no immediate issues. I was back and forth a lot.
When I returned at one point to LR, it was hung.

It seemed to occur (as I recall at least once) after I had left LR in an idle state, after exporting a file, followed by a upload of the same file to photo site.
And this was not necessarily the first and only time I did this.
Perhaps the only common thing was that PS had a tiff open that it had saved back into LR.

I had to use task manager stop LR.
LR restarted with no apparent loss of information.

I was doing nothing that I had not done in LR Classic 7.2

A minor irritation in the grand scheme of things.

Jimmsp,

Not the kind of message I enjoy reading. o_O Have you tried doing any searches? Looked at the official Adobe forum for LR?

No I have not.
I am traveling tomorrow, so I might look on Sat.
I don't have anything specific to search for, such as "LR hangs up when I ...." , so I don't hold out much hope.
It would be of an info thing for Adobe.

I had been, but about an hour before it crashed. I have also found that if the pc goes to sleep lightroom will not reopen on the PC waking.

I posted this info on the Adobe site. There I found numerous incidences of crashes. Nothing much in common, and on both Windows and on Macs.
