My Lightroom v2015.6.1 stops sync'ing frequently to Lightroom mobile.

I have to close the desktop application and reopen it for synchronization to start again. I'm sync'ing a fair amount of photos over a few days.

  • I've checked my internet connection.
  • I've restarted Lighroom, which fixes the problem temporarily

Does anyone know why it stops so often?

    Check you've got enough storage at both ends (and for a bidirectional sync opeartion it wouldn't surprise me if it needed considerably more than the size of the files). Test what happens if your internet connection goes down momentarily -- it may not recover very well. – Chris H Nov 9 '16 at 9:57
  • "Test what happens if your internet connection goes down momentarily -- it may not recover very well." - that was it. I didn't think something so simple could be the cause, thanks! Feel free to answer it. – cliffclof Nov 9 '16 at 15:20

    I think this is very valid because I assumed Lightroom would have auto recovered from a downed internet connection, but it does not. – cliffclof Nov 25 '16 at 6:05

Sometimes operations don't recover properly from a brief interruption in internet connection. So it's worth checking whether such momentary glitches cause the process to hang.
