    Mystery: Catalog Opening Speed

    photoguy1981

      Hi - I have a performance issue I can't figure out.

       

      I have a catalog with 12,072 images that takes 8 minutes to open. The catalog folder is 3.52GB in size. This catalog was started in LR 4 by was updated since now I have LR CC 2015.10.

       

      As an experiment I exported it to a new catalog with NO Previews. This preview-less catalog still takes 8 minutes to open. It's folder size is just 161MB.

       

      I assume having no previews makes the matter of whether the original importation setting was for "minimum" preview or standard irrelevant.

       

      (I have a third catalog with 3,327 images that opens in less than a minute!)

       

      I am using a MacBook Pro (mid-2015) 2.5GHz i7 with 16MB RAM and 500MB SSD drive, running El Capitan.

       

      Any insight/help would be appreciated!
