p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · LR3 Import Extremely slow after reformat


Can't figure out what my problem is with LR3 and the import screen. Everytime I crank it up, it takes forever to load the import screen, forever to load each folder and subfolder, and forever to select individual images to import.

I have the cache settings at 200gigs, 8 gigs of ram on the machine, q9400 processor @ 3ghz. not much else running on the machine as well.

Ideas?

Thanks,

Cam

No dice, still awful slow. I'm afraid the disk may be failing since it's taking forever to open folders.

Ironically, my laptop is now faster at running LR than my desktop. If only I could sell my wife on a new PC haha. Atleast new guts to speed it up.

Found the problem.

With COMODO cloud backup installed ( program I used to drag and drop school docs to a cloud) Lightroom tried to access the cloud as a file source. Since it isn't really a viable source without logging in and other internet technicalities I don't pretend to understand, it was drastically slowing down the import process.

Hopefully this will serve to help someone else in the future.
