Slow from Browse to Edit - Just seen your reply additional question 0n moving photos to external SSD
So it is OK to have my photos and PerfectBrowseCache & Scratch on the same external SSD drive. If So How do I move all my photo's to the new external drive. What I mean is can I just copy my Pictures folder to the new drive and how do I tell ON1 to use this I guess there must be an issue with Albums point to the wrong place etc.
Do you think you could avoid creating a new thread for every post. It's impossible now to follow the progress. Please put your replies in the same thread.
My Apologies, will do0
To answer your question, you can just copy your photos and sidecars to the new location. If you use catalogues, I would suggest deleting the current catalogues and recreating them with the photos in the new location. Any albums will have to be recreated manually.
edit: I'm not sure this is what you want to do though. I have to review what Brian told you to see if I understand what you're doing.
Edit again: I don't think you're supposed to be moving your photos to the same drive as your cache. If I read it correctly it was suggested to move the cache to the external drive. Brian only mentioned that he has his photos on an external drive too, but not the same one.0
What Rick said is correct, I have separate drives for my photos and for ON1's working spaces. I don't know how much the program accesses the photos drive during editing but I do see that drive's activity light flashing at the same time as the scratch drive's activity light is flashing. This tells me the program is working with both locations simultaneously and therefore I want them on separate drives to prevent the I/O bottleneck from having a negative impact on performance.0
Thank you for your very prompt response, I will add an external drive. If I just copy my 2019 photo's across (older than this are effectively archived) will On1 still work OK for the photo's left on the internal drive bearing in mind that the PerfectBrowseCache & Scratch is on the external drive. I except that if I have to process the photos left on the internal drive will most likely not see a speed improvement.
Yes, the program will work properly with photos on both drives. Keep in mind that you can define only one location for telling the program where your photos are stored, i.e., the default location. I would point that to the external drive.0
In my situation changing the location of PerfectBrowseCache & Scratch to another (SSD)drive gave a significant speed boost!0
Add external drive as suggest but moving from brose to edit can take very long time so that activity monitor shows ON1 not responding. I does complete eventually. But the interesting thing is that CPU time for on1 is only showing around 6% when hung up up with the CPU idle time of over 97% i.e. it is no any other application hogging resources. So what is On1 raw doing during this time. It looks as if it stops then after a delay starts again. The delay appears to be always the same. Once it comes up then the the image must be cached as it will come up very quickly a second or third time etc until it is moved from the cache by other images being edited.0
If you've poked around this forum at all, you'll see that this is a common problem. There is no instant solution, but you can report it to On1 support if you like.
If you do that, include the info requested here...
