    Hi There

    I have Lightroom installed on a mid 2012 MacBook Pro. My Catalogue is housed on the Mac with all my photos stored on a Drobo 5N attached to my Wi-fi network which is made up of two Airport Extremes.
    Over the past few weeks I have noticed that some files can suddenly go black or partially black. It is always horizontal bars. It can be .NEF (from a Nikon D800) raw files or >RAF files from a Fuji XT1 or x100s or tiff files created using NIK from within Lightroom.

    Any thoughts?

    It could be a network issue. It could be that your Drobo is failing. It the Drobo a NAS? Or is it connected to the Airport Extreme via USB?
    Can you use Finder and Previews to navigate to one of the suspect files and view it in Previews? What happens if you copy a suspect file to your local drive and try to access it with LR?
