I’ve been running into and Advanced Search issue and I’m looking for input from the ON1 Community. My photos are cataloged in year folders onto two drives; my most recent photos are on my Late 2015 3.2 Ghz i5 iMac with SSD drive and the majority of my photo folders are on a 7200 rpm external drive connected by USB 3.0.
My biggest issue is the incredible poor response of Advanced Search in catalog folders. Fifty percent of the time ON1 crawls to a stop and prevents the scrolling of photos (the beautiful beach ball is present). After 5 minutes the scrolling may improve or ON1 will crash.
Other notes, my cache folders reside on the iMac and Time Machine is partitioned on the external hard drive but I’m planning to move the external photos to a stand alone external ssd drive. Also, I’ve worked with the friendly support at ON1 but no solution has been provided during which time we did a complete reinstall of ON1.
If replacing the external hard drive does not improve performance I’m contemplating a new install of MAC OS 11.0 and installing all programs manually rather than using Time Machine. I’m open to suggestions.
