I am using adobe Lightroom to file my photos. I have over 56000 photos and well over 6000 folders. I am using a MacBook Pro with High Sierra OS 10.13.4 and Lightroom Classic CC version 7.3. Every time I make a new folder, add photos to an existing folder and move it, all of the folders become "greyed" out and I have to wait ten minutes for the folder names to become white again and the number of photos in the folder to show up. I am unable to move any photos into these "greyed" out folders until the folder names become "white" again.
Does anyone know how to speed up the "refresh" rate of the folders, or why this happens or how to fix it?
To tell you the truth, I'm not surprised that 6000 folders is going to take some time to update. Maybe I would have expected they update in fewer than 10 minutes, but I have never had 6000 folders. So, sadly, I don't think there is a way to speed this up, other than perhaps a faster CPU. Or not use folders as an organizing tool.
