I've always used ACR for initial image processing, but recently it's slowed down to the point where moving between images takes around 1-2 seconds. I've actually ended up pulling an old laptop out of a cupboard that's running vista and Bridge CS3!
So my question is, what can I try other than the below which haven't been much use:
Clearing thumbnail/preview cache
Changing cache directory
downgrade to CS3!
Moving images onto SSD
Editing direct from CF Card
The images themselves are from a Nikon D2Hs, just over 4 megapixel, and it doesn't seem to matter where on the computer they're stored.
My main machine is:
Windows 7, Dual Xeon (8 core, 2.4GHz) , 64GB RAM, 160GB of space left on scratch/cache disk array - exibiting no other faults.
Let me know if there's anything I can post to show performance etc, and thanks in advance.
