Bridge CS6 Cache Indexing Very Slow

Jul 30, 2012 8:04 PM

In CS6 the first time a folder gets indexed it takes about 5-10 times longer than for CS5.  I use embedded thumbnails.


For example I have a new folder of 70 .wmv and .mp4 video files.  Each file is between 100 and 240 megs.  I took over 6 minutes to load the thumbnalils the first time.  I dumped the cache from the Tools menu and it rebuilt in about 40 seconds, which is the same as for CS5.


Anyone else experience this?


Win7 64 bit, 8 gig ram.

    Not noticed anything with 16MB NEF and RW2 raw files. I don't use MP4 nor WMV, sorry.

    Curt, I have noticed this for video files as well, it's painfully slow. I do notice it indexes much slower when accessing an external drive, but this is frustrating because I feel like it should be faster.
