I am trialing CC 2014 to open some files from an animator. It locks up all the time for between 10 to 60 seconds. It picks up fine once it wakes back up, but it happens very regularly and doesn't seem to relate to any particular activity.
During this time it is marked in the task manager as (Not responsive) It doesn't seem to be taking up a huge amount of CPU or disk read/write during this. It happens whether I have the network connected or not.
It's the only thing on my laptop that does this. I have CS4 installed and it doesn't have this issue.
My laptop has 16GB ram, quad core i7 and good size solid state with over 100GB free space that can do 550MBps.
Is anyone else having these issues? It's unusable, but it's giving me plenty of tea breaks so I suppose that's something.
I know someone who seems to have similar issues on Flash CS6.
This could be due to the creation of Auto Recovery file in the background. Please note that the Auto Recovery is turned ON by default in the Application preferences and it is set to create the recovery file every 10 minutes.
You can turn off this by going to Edit>Preferences>General and unchecking the Auto-Recovery check box or you can increase the Auto recovery frequency so as to avoid frequent lock ups.
Wooah, yeah I think that's done it. Also seems to have fixed it for my friend using CS6. Thanks for the help. I guess I was right with my every 10 minutes estimate then, it was exactly 10 minutes
Surprised it locks it up so bad though. Maybe there should be a warning message if it regularly takes longer than a few seconds telling you what it was and how to disable it.
