    I'm assuming that you haven't checked the settings or you would have mentioned that. Go through the attached article first. Also, if you happen to be building catalogs that will take a lot of CPU until they are done so give them a couple of days to complete and try again.

    I had looked at that but the final section in that article reads

    "Please note, if your machine does not have a dedicated GPU from AMD or NVIDIA and is equipped with the built-in Intel HD Graphics, please disregard the steps mentioned above to configure the program to run exclusively off of the AMD or NVIDIA GPU. Windows machines that have both a dedicated GPU (from AMD or NVIDIA) and the built-in Intel Graphics are the only machines that need to be configured to run off of one GPU. If you have any other questions, please contact"

    My machine DOES HAVE built-in Intel HD Graphics (Intel HD graphics 530)  so I'd assumed that the article wasn't relevant and no action was needed or in fact possible.

    I'll leave On1 running for a few hours each day to allow catalogues to build if indeed thats whats happening.

    QUESTION - is there anyway to know if its building catalogues?

    David,  In the upper left corner where you cataloged folders are listed you will see a little round symbol that fills in as the folder is cataloged.

    You may need to expand the folders to see it.

    My folders have been complete for some time now so can't give you a picture of an example of one being built.

    There are still settings in Win 10 that might help. Open Windows settings and search for Graphics...

    When catalogs are building you'll see the 'clock' indicator next to the catalog name. Initial cataloging could take days, but even after it's initially done the catalogs will update occasionally on their own.

    Rick, David

    Thanks both for input.

     

    I have On1 set for High Performance in graphics settings.

    Yes Im seeing the 'clock' symbol next to a catalogued folder so I'll leave the machine running with On1 open as much as possible for next few days.

     

    Is there any way to tell how far along the cataloguing process is?

    That's what the clock is for. If you hover over it, it gives you a percentage.

    So it does! Many thanks Rick

    60% done will leave machine running overnight.

    If you are running on just the processor built-in Intel GPU yes, you will see a definite improvement in the program's performance. The more VRAM the card contains the more your performance will improve. Get the biggest, fastest card you can afford. You won't be disappointed.

    David, I've just discovered that 2020.1, if you update to that,  doesn't have the clocks anymore. You have to hover over the Catalog name to see the progress.

    The clocks are still there during the cataloging process and while they are being checked for updates. You'll see them from time to time after the process has finished.

    They haven't been there for me all day. Zero indication as to why my CPU has been pegged for hours.

    So last night the 'clock' initially said 60% done. a little later it said 20% done, then 4%. Now after running all night it says 11% done.

    For better or worse I have my <Pictures> folder set as catalogued - it contains many sub folders. I'm assuming its cataloguing each folder individually working its way through my <Pictures> folder structure and what the clock is showing is the % done of the folder its cataloguing at that moment rather then the overall % of the <pictures> folder as a whole.

    Is this a reasonable assumption?

    I haven't been able to figure that one out either. I don't think the main Pictures folder is showing progress for any individual folder as at times I've seen multiple folders each with its own clock. Most likely it is re-evaluating the percentage as it starts catalog each new folder.
