Lightroom 5.3: having no files on boot-drive possible?

I installed Lightroom 5.3. on my PC. Because I have a small 64 GB SSD-drive I installed the program and catalog under a bigger D-drive. But I still find files on the C-drive (e.g. c:\users\manfred\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom). Is it possible to have all files on D-drive and nothing on C-drive? Is there a setting in the program?

no, adobe programs always use the c drive.

  • Two Boot Drives possible?

    Hello.  I want to know if I can buy a small second hard drive and install windows on it and boot from that drive as well?  I only want it for a video game.

    Can't tell by your signature but it looks like you have a Mac-BOOK-Pro and this is the Mac_Pro___ forums so the answers vary accordingly.
    From what I understand, Windows will NOT install on an external disk. So you would have to install it via Boot Camp onto another partition on your Mac boot drive. OR, you can replace the DVD drive and install another drive there and do it that way also. Search the forums for the different ways and which ones to use, HD or SSD. 
    Replace your internal HD with a 1T HD or larger then partition the Windows part for 100gig and buy a cheap external housing for the old HD and use it as your backup ddrive?
    There are instructions on different ways to install it on an external drive on Yahoo/Google but it's not supported by Microsoft.

  • Boot drive Full

    I installed Final Cut Pro (Studio 2) on my Boot drive (80 gigs) but failed to load the xtra files on my Tera byte drive (xtra internal drive). Of course it filled/used up all memory. I can't do any thing. Can't even get online. I want to remove all files from boot drive and start over (re-install FCP) My OS is 10.5.6. My Tera byte drive does not have the OSX on it. What should I do?

    Is there a way to install the OSX with out the disc?
    You could Clone the 80 to the 1,00 with Get carbon copy cloner to make an exact copy of your old HD to the New one...
    Have a look at Synchronize! Pro X 6.0.5!-pro-x
    Or the most expensive one & my favorite, Tri-Backup...
    You just have to be certain to NOT erase the 1 TB if you have info on it you need, by making say a new Folder on it called OldData, and moving everything on it to that folder.
    I do have two other external drives (500gig and 1TB)
    If you could move any needed Data off one of those that would be the safest clone, assuming they are Firewire & have no one button feature, you can then choose to boot of them by holding the Option/alt key down at bot time.

  • I am trying to import cr2files from the camera into lightroom 5 and keep getting an error message saying Lightroom can not read the files and therefore will not import them.  Has anyone had a similar problem-.thanks

    If you are having the same problem, i.e. a disk permission problem, open your favorite search engine and search on, "change disk permissions", and I think you'll find plenty of information on how to fix the problem. This is a Lightroom forum. Your problem is with your operating system. There is no sense in rewriting instructions that are already available if you do a simple search.

  • Lightroom 5.2 Error: The file could not be edited because Photoshop CC could not be launched...

    When I am using Lightroom 5.2, and I try to edit a file in Adobe Photoshop CC from Lightroom, Photoshop starts up and after 15 to 20 seconds, I receive the following error message: "The file could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop CC could not be launched." If I click "OK" on the error message form, the image finally opens in Photoshop.
    I've uninstalled and reinstalled Lightroom 5.2 and Photoshop CC multiple times, but the edit in Photoshop problem won't go away.
    Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

    I am having the same problem in lightroom 5 on a mac (Mavericks).  I'm wondering if it's because I have both Photoshop CS5 and Photoshop CC and somehow they are conflicting, but I don't see how.  I clearly have Photoshop CC as the primary external editor. 
    Last night, after seeing this post, and ekupp's response, I uninstalled Photoshop CC and reinstalled it via the creative cloud and that fixed it, but today it's doing the same thing again. When I choose to edit in photoshop CC, Photoshop CC opens but I still get the error in lightroom.  If Photoshop CC is already open, I still get the error.  I refuse to keep uninstalling/reinstalling it...  I can't lose Photoshop CS5 as I use it for designing (I like the view in mini bridge better), but I like CC for editing.
    This is creating a secondary problem for me as I am ending up with a bazillion (OK, maybe 5) psd copies of the raw files that I want to edit.  When I get the error, Lightroom proceeds to render the files.  I really want to turn that function off because as of now I have to try to click the microscopic "x" for each file as it "prepares to edit" and that's tedious and is creating extra files I don't want. 
    Last thing, since I'm here and hopeful to get an answer...  I have a Mac, as I stated and I like my spaces.  However, when the "edit in photoshop" function works spaces continues to force me to the photoshop space.  No multitasking allowed as my files are opened.  I think this is a lightroom or photoshop quirk, as when I run actions I am able to go to a different space (safari or lightroom) to work as it works for me.

  • New to Lightroom, problem importing raw CR2 files.

    I am new to Lightroom and am having trouble importing my CR2 raw photo files. In the "import" section I select my SD card that contains the raw image files. All .jpeg files on the card show up as thumbnails but the CR2 files show "preview not available for this file." I select one of the CR2 thumbnails anyway, select a destination folder on my external hard drive and click "import." A window pops up that says, "this file is not recognized by the raw support format in Lightroom." I'm using Lightroom 4.4 and am working with a Windows Vista operating system (on an old, junky laptop). My camera is a Canon 70D and am shooting in RAW+JPEG. I also downloaded the Adobe .DNG converter 6.3 to try to convert the files before importing them into Lightroom and it is also not recognizing and importing my CR2 files. Not sure what to do at this point. Any suggestions?

    I would recommend downloading DNG Converter 8.2 which is compatible with Vista.
    The latest version 8.6 requires W7 or W8

    Did you buy your machine second-hand? That's really the only way you would have to purchase OS X 10.8.x from the App Store... but, yes, if you have a USB thumb drive with a bootable installer (such as made with Lion DiskMaker) you can boot from that and reinstall OS X.

  • Lightroom 5 can't copy files when importing PC catalog

    Attempting to merge my old PC catalog into my newer Mac one.
    I tidied up both catalogs, then consolidated the PC catalog and media onto an external USB 3 drive (NTFS) - Mac catalog is on an external Firewire drive (Mac OS Extended Journaled). Both separate catalogs were extensively tested and were working, with all media accessible.
    I imported as catalog from the Mac catalog, and previews looked fine, and imported catalog looks fine EXCEPT almost none of the media has copied across (about 4500 photos worth!) some did, though, no idea why, or why not, in either case. Got an error message which said Lightroom couldn't copy some files.
    I did so much manual cleanup, which took days, to make this painless, I'm pretty gutted such a simple thing didn't work.
    Any idea what might be wrong and how to clean up this mess without having to go through it all manually AGAIN, please?

    OK, I'll try to give you the info you need. Firstly, I'm not the one doing the copying, I'm asking Lightroom to copy files to a new location while performing an 'import from catalog'. Also, I've just undone the previous import and I was incorrect, Lightroom copied none of the files across at all. This is all being done on the Mac, just so you know.
    Exact steps were as follows -
    1 - File -> Import from another Catalog (choose PC Catalog on NTFS HDD).
    2 - Appropriate files (all of them in fact) selected.
    3 - Settings were- File Handling - copy to: (folder on the Mac external HDD). Replace: Nothing (only new files copied). With preview.
    2 - Exact error message is "Problem importing from catalog 'Lightroom was unable to copy the files for these images to the folder you selected'." The previews appear in the catalog but with the missing file icons.
    I've removed the previous import and tried again, with the same result. In between the tries, I checked read/write permissions on both drives, which have full access, and also tried manually copying one of the folders across between the same two HDDs using the Finder (i.e. outside Lightroom), which worked perfectly, so I can't agree it's not a Lightroom issue at the moment.

  • Seperate out User related files from Syste related files for boot disc

    I have a primary drive with the default Mac set up of System files, Application files and User files.
    I want to end up with the System files, Application folder etc but not the User folder directory on a standalone drive that I can boot from.
    I have copied the System related files (not the user files) to a new drive. However the drive containing the system files is not recognisable as a boot drive.
    Is it possible to make it a boot drive.
    The ultimate aim is to set up a SSD drive for the System and programs without having to do a major re install of the OS and applications.

    Copy everything under /Users to another drive.
    You can use CCC to do that or you can do it manually.
    Clone everything but user account folders. Make sure you have a bootable system. Some rerun Combo update as part of refresh when moving the system.
    Actually clean install of OS X takes minutes, and Setup Assistant will ask what you want to import off your WORKING system.
    Leave a small user folder ~/Library and empty all the other files on your system drive.
    Keep your default drive as is for a week to serve as backup.

  • 500 GB Junk Files on Boot Hard Drive Hidden and can't access

    Can someone tell me how to find and trash these hidden files.  I tried third party software and they don't show up nor do they show up on a spotlight search including invisible files . I have a 2T Hard drive and it is filled up with about 500GB of hidden files having roughly the following name
    "Volumes/Mirrors (45) From My Passport/Nikon Probably All Dups From My Passport on 120823/120612 Temporary hold for transferred from #02/Autosave Vault/Lesson 12 Project/Lesson 12 Project_10-06-08_1730"
    Above is a single line from ChronoSync.  They, of course, are not the same name past "autosaveVault" and there are about 1700 of them. Every single one has is same up to "AutosaveVault".  I found them by backing up the hard drive with ChronoSync and going into the log.  Fortunately they were almost at the very end of the 24 plus hour backup. And, the first stuff that was backed up was actually known data and the discrepancy did not occur until the know data was virtually all backed up.
    I have a disk drive labled Mirrors (45) that I erase but before that they seemed to exist on, but I really don't think it was 500GB. I don't know if I erased "Mirror (45)"  by reoformatting or just trashing the files. I never have used the word autosave Vault either. I recognize the file names and folders beyond Autosave.
    I have not been able to view, let alone delete these files on the boot drive which has a little over 1.5T of "data" thats shown as actually exisitng in the file command.
    I am pretty certain this is related to the Mavericks upgrade but not positive. I do know I have another backup drive with mountain Lion that was last backedup about a week before what has been a huge diaster with Mavericks, and there may be less then 50GB "hidden" on it but its hard to tell.
    The storage report from "about this Mac"  is 40GB shy of 48GB show as free that is free space should be 88GB if you believe "about this Mac"

    Get free OmniDiskSweeper and run as root. Open Terminal and copy/paste and hit return. Give your admin pword when requested, which won't appear as you type it in. Hit return again.
    sudo /Applications/

    Note, be very careful when running as root, since this will give you unfettered access to all critical system files.

  • Is there any way to get lightroom 4 to recognise raw files from my 7d Mark 2?

    I have been searching on here for a few days now, but can't seem to get my head around the answers I got a new 7D mark 2 a few weeks ago.  When I first came to download my pictures from the card I was only marginally surprised they were unreadable - I'd forgotten to format the memory card to the camera.  No big deal, I thought, merrily deleting the photos Lightroom couldn't read and formatting the card.  But now that I have formatted the card, I am kindof upset that Lightroom still cannot read the files at all.  I have downloaded the DNG converter and updated all my software, but if the files are not being read at all, how am I supposed to convert them?
    What am I supposed to do? I can see the photos on the camera itself - I usually shoot in Raw and JPEG to cover myself, but this time Lightroom isn't reading either format.  If I shoot purely in JPEG I can download them without problem, but together (jpeg and raw) I can't see either.
    Tech wise I have a hp laptop, 4GB RAM, 2tb hd (separate), Windows 7 64-bit os, Lightroom 4 and Photoshop Elements 12.
    Help me please?

    I have downloaded the DNG converter and updated all my software, but if the files are not being read at all, how am I supposed to convert them?
    You use the DNG converter (version 8.7 or later) to convert the RAW to DNG. This is a separate step, outside of Lightroom, before you import. Then th DNGs will be import-able into Lightroom 4.
    I usually shoot in Raw and JPEG to cover myself, but this time Lightroom isn't reading either format.
    If your card has both JPG and RAW, Lightroom isn't reading the JPGs? Could you give us the error message or describe what is happening? Also make sure that the option to treat JPG next to RAW as separate photos is checked. Lightroom Help | Set import preferences

  • I can´t find windows support files for boot camp

    I can´t find windows support files for boot camp

    Boot Camp Assistant
    If you can't download, go to Network control panel and check your settings there, look to see if there is more than one interface listed. And turn off "Auto-proxy setting" and see if that helps, it does in half the cases.
    The only thing really needed would be a small Apple Software Update for Windows program to pull the drivers down while running Windows. Just that one program, which could update itself as happen with 2.0 and 2.1 version.
    As it is, downloads can take 8 hrs for a tiny 620MB package. Strange. True. Been like this.

  • Creating a Mavericks USB boot drive after the horse has bolted.  Can I create a bootable USB drive from my iMac after installing Mavericks without saving the Install OS X file?  Do I need to re- download the whole 5.29 Gb again?

    Creating a Mavericks USB boot drive after the horse has bolted.  Can I create a bootable USB drive from my iMac after installing Mavericks without saving the Install OS X file?  Do I need to re- download the whole 5.29 Gb from the App Store again?  My problem is my 4Gb/month allowance on a 12 month contract.  I cannot purchase a data block from my ISP and although my speed is theoretically slowed to 64k after reaching my 4Gb, it actually ceases to download in reality.

    HI tasclix, it depends what you mean by an OS X boot drive.
    If you want a recovery disk from which you can reinstall (by re-downloading) or recover from a time machine backup, then nbar is correct.
    If, however, you want to boot and run the OS X installer from the USB drive (so that you don't need to download again), then you will need a copy of "Install OS X"; see this article:
    Before downloading again, search your system to see if the installer is still there - it's usually in the /Applications folder unless it has been deleted, but check your whole system for it anyway, you never know, you might still have it somewhere.

  • Can I switch out a hard drive for an SSD without having to clone the existing hard drive, and then install Yosemite from an USB Boot Drive onto the new SSD?

    Can I simply replace a hard drive with a new SSD and just install Yosemite from a USB boot drive onto the SSD? I recently bought a used MBP and it has absolutely no files on it except for the OS, and so I'm assuming I don't need to clone the current hard drive as I can just reinstall the OS onto the new SSD.

    Just a quick follow up question, is formatting the SSD with HFS+ done in Disk Utility?...
    It's possible that the SSD will be set up for use on a PC, which means it will have a Master Boot Record partition table rather than a GUID Partition Table, which is what Yosemite needs. In Disk Utility, select the SSD and click the Partition button. Create a new Partition Layout and click the Options... button at the bottom. You'll likely see MBR is selected. Choose GUID instead and Mac OS Extended (Journaled) for the Format.

  • Windows 8 and ArchLinux dual-boot - Failed to open file: arch\boot\...

    I have a problem where I don't know how to configure the EFISTUB to boot ArchLinux along Windows 8. I have read the instructions on the wiki and tried for two days and the only thing I've come up with is copying some files into the /boot/efi/EFI/arch/ folder, and adding the entry into the UEFI boot menu. I can select it when Restarting Windows8 through the shift-restart thing and stuff but when it attempts to boot it says:
    Failed to open file: arch\boot\archiso.img
    I don't know how to set this up and fix it. I am so confused with everything right now due to the instructions on the wiki basically being "You can either do it this way, that way or any other way." but does not specifically expain how each works (at least so that I understand it fully) and what has to be done to complete these steps. Like, I need a complete tutorial from Start to Finish, to do this because I'm too nervous messing up my partitions. I have understood some parts thought and what I want is to be able to boot it from the EFISTUB instead of chain-booting like I usually do. I just don't know how to connect the entry in the list to the proper files to boot the system.
    What I have done:
    Installed the base system.
    Istalled grub in the base system but has not used grub to install on the /boot yet because I don't know if it is to be used if I'm supposed to use the EFISTUB (I was thinking efibootmgr would be enough)
    Tried to use efibootmgr to make the entry, but the entry does not work. (If this is how I should do it, can you explain which partition to target and what the different values would mean when answering?)
    I don't know which one is right, or if both shall be done (I guess Grub is used if I want to chain-load. I guess I can do it if it's the only way)
    Anyway, I hope you guys can answer me so I can fix this. Thanks

    What you're trying to do now is:
    EFI->kernel (EFI stub)
    This is appealingly direct, but it's tricky to get working. What the wiki now recommends is:
    EFI->gummiboot->kernel (EFI stub)
    These approaches are less direct, but they're easier to configure. The trouble is that both the EFI's built-in boot manager and the EFI stub loader are tricky to configure. For a newbie to get them both configured correctly on a first attempt at installing Arch is very difficult. Getting the EFI to launch gummiboot or GRUB is easier because these programs don't require the complex parameters that the EFI stub loader requires. Those parameters can instead be specified in the gummiboot or GRUB configuration file, which is easier to manage for quite a few reasons.
    If you want to pursue using the EFI stub loader directly, you certainly can. I've learned from experience, though, that it's not worth my time to try to help with users who want to do this. Using an intermediary program is easier to get working. IMHO, the direct approach has no real benefits except that it gives you bragging rights that you've done it. Your system won't boot any faster or more reliably in the more direct approach. (Well, technically it will be faster, by only by a matter of milliseconds, assuming you use a 0 timeout value in gummiboot.) In fact, it will be less reliable, because gummiboot, GRUB, and rEFInd all offer ways to adjust boot options on a boot-by-boot basis, which is very helpful when fixing problems. You can't do this with the direct approach.
