    Photo Shop Elements 8 crashes with Lion OS
    Hi All,

    I am running Lion OS on a 2010 iMac 12gigs of ram. Now When I run PSE 8 it appears to work properly, but every single time that I quit it, I get a "Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 quit unexpectedly" error box.

    Anyone else seeing this..

    Thanks
    Mel

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    the reports I've seen show PSE8 as running fine. Have you tried to reinstall it? It's worth a shot.

    No I did not try re-installing it, will give that a shot and report back. Some things are strange with Lion OS, not sure why but my SuperDuper backup disk does not show up anymore when I reboot and hold down the option key. I just see my internal drive and a recovery drive. Not sure what's up with that, I have the latest Super Duper installed.

    Specs:
    27" iMac i5, 3.2 GHz, iPad 3, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, El Capitan
    Wipe the SuperDuper external drive and make a complete new backup. Lion treats the SuperDuper clone and the CCC clone differently than Snow Leopard. I had to do the same thing with my CCC clone backup drive. After the wipe and new clone backup, it was fine and booted OK.

    I've tried that, made a new super duper backup and at boot time when I hold down the option key, I still don't see the super duper backup drive. All the files appear to be on it, Not sure what else to try.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    I had some trouble making a CCC clone before I upgraded to Lion (ie I was still on Snow Leopard at the time). I checked the log and found that a single corrupted file was causing the clone not to be bootable. Deleted the corrupted (unimportant) file, cloned again, everything worked great.

    Specs:
    27" iMac i7 (2011) 10.11, Mac Mini i5 (2014), iPhone6s, Apple Watch, iPad Air 2, New AppleTV (4?)
    CS5 needed the Lion Java update..... I wonder is Elements does too?

    Worth a shot?
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
