I've been pulling my hair out lately about the corrupted photos in my LightRoom 5.7 library and it's crazy how many things it has turned out NOT to be.  I used to do compatibility testing as part of my job and I'm very analytical, so I knew how to test and eliminate items. But as you'll see..some particulars still escape ANY explanation.

LONG STORY SHORT (SKIP TOWARDS THE END IF YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT THE DETAILS), I SEEM TO HAVE FIXED THE CORRUPTED PHOTOS ISSUE (FOR NOW). 

The oddest thing to me was going back to files I had worked on about a week or so back and had done work on and at the time and for at least a week there were no issues with any of them. THEN...about 2-3 weeks after that I went back to look at them and all of a sudden some of them began appearing corrupted. 

To me, that is the oddest thing ever. I still can't explain it.

BUT...the external drive my files are on is USB 3.0.

The CF card readers I was using was 3.0..and I had bought a different one to test out a theory. Same thing happened with that one by the way.

Today I used a different PC and imported those same files into a new catalog on that laptop with a totally new install of LightRoom. I even went back in version to 5.5 with it just to test that out. I imported the files into the catalog over my home network and had them copy on my C drive in My Pictures folder so they'd be local. SAME THING HAPPENED!

Remembering something that happened a few months back that seemed to make a difference, I removed the photos, then re-imported them into that new library all over again but this time I used a USB 2.0 CARD READER that i used to use.

NO CORRUPTED FILES!! YAY! :)   Though obviously it took a LOT longer but I didn't care.

At that point I copied those clean files (no corruption anywhere) over my network to my main photo library and copied OVER the existing photos that were there.

Then I went back to my main PC where I do all of my work. I then deleted the Previews cache folder, and launched Lightroom and went to that folder.

They came up and some still looked corrupted. :(  BUT...(HOLD ON IT GETS GOOD, TRUST ME)...all of the files had an icon that said the metadata had been changed and did I want to import the settings from disk or overwrite the settings. 

I wasn't sure what to do, but with several corrupted photos still showing, I noted the file name and picked the first option (import settings from disk).  Nothing, still corrupted...but wait...let me try something now. So I then had Lightroom generate a new 1:1 preview for that file and several seconds later. VOILA! Clean valid file again! :)  !!!!

So then I did another corrupt file and chose the second option. Same results. Generated a new preview and voila. File is good again. 

So the metadata option at that point didn't matter. Just generating new previews worked.

So where do I stand with this right now?

Temporarily I'm planning to:
- Get a new internal SSD to use for this same purpose and move my entire library to that instead of using the external 3.0 HDD..and pray that none of my older files don't begin exhibiting issues after a period of being fine.
- Only import files using a USB 2.0 card reader
- Continue researching this issue even though the number of people suffering from it seems low but BOY OH BOY is it nerve wracking when it happens to you.

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS? Please chime in IF you've take time to eliminate what may have been causing the issue.

Pretty cool technique. Thanks for sharing.
I had kind of a hard time coming up with an appropriate title for this post... I'm still not totally sure if it conveys what I'm trying to show you today.

Had to edit my review. Used to be our favorite place to drive to on the weekends. But as of 7/24/16 we feel very differently. They have become inconsistent and mistake prone over the past 3-4 months. Different staff etc or something. But we no longer look forward to coming here as much. We've mentioned things to the manager at times to make him aware and he does care and is trying to make everything consistently great.
