If I do a search on my root level catalog folder and get tired of waiting and try to cancel the Progress / Scanning box I get a spinning beach ball that seemingly never ends. I am loathe to force quit any application, particularly these kind that rely on databases of some sort (I'm assuming...), worrying about corrupting the program in some way. Admittedly the folder has 100,000+ images. I can't recall how long I have let it spin and will try not to cancel again but a search, even through that many images shouldn't take more than a half a minute, should it?
Does anyone have a sense as to what damage, if any, may be done by force quitting in such circumstances?
