What is Lyve doing when it says it is 'Preparing'?What is Lyve doing when it says it is 'Preparing'?
When Lyve is in the 'Preparing' stage, it's performing a detailed scan of your photos and videos. Lyve does a lot of processing to ensure that duplicates are removed and mobile-optimized versions of your photos and videos are created. It's also syncing the index of all of your photos and videos with the Lyve service so they can be properly distributed and accessible from any device.
Depending on the amount of content it has to prepare, Lyve could take a while to perform this process. Lyve only has to do this during it's initial stages of analyzing your photo and video collection and won't repeat the process until you add new photos and videos to your account.
