After using the new Bridge for about an hour, it started giving me "Not enough RAM" errors. Task Manager showed Bridge consuming over 25GB of memory. Bridge would not close. Tried closing it in Task Manager - no luck. Closed PS, then Bride closed. Restarted Bridge, it immediately consumed over 24GB of memory. I rebooted. Bridge started out with a reasonable 4GB, but grew to over 25GB within 10 minutes. I have PS memory max set to 21GB.
After 30 minutes or so, the entire PC becomes unusable with less than 1% memory available. Task Manager won't close Bridge - must reboot.

I attached the log file to this email, but it doesn't appear here in the forum. Was it received? I don't see a way to attach a log file here.
I just finished editing the raw files in the same folder as described above. It was painful because Bridge was taking so much of the CPU and disk bandwidth.
Bridge has been running for over 3 hours. PS is the only other app running. Although Bridge doesn't say it's doing anything, most of the .psd thumbnails in the Content window are either dark gray or gray checkerboard. It's consuming 10+ GB of memory and 50% to 90% of the CPU. This is in the same folder I've been working with for the last week +.
What in the world could Bridge possibly be doing?
I've sent today's Bridge log file to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This should not be news to you guys at Adobe. I've been reporting the same issue for over two years! Three releases later and the problem is still there. Good luck to the OP. The issue is related to the rendering of previews and writing to the Cache.
Can you go into windows system performance and change your system folders and change your performance options.
Make sure processor scheduling is set for programs.
Under "virtual memory" see if you can split it up with no more then 15% of your total C: drive size. Split the page file to two or more hard drives.
Make sure under visual effects its set set for best performance.
remember from a cache creation stand point Bridge is starting over rebuilding cache.
If you have Bridge 10 installed, delete it
Beyond that yes, its still a pig with new lipstick.
Bridge is a nightmare and I spent 2.5 hours with tech support only to finally realize the guy must have been intoxicated. When he at last managed to get onto my computer, his arrow was all over the place and his "fixes" were repetative to no avail. And yes, virtually every Adobe update so far has caused me massive problems. Now, Bridge won't let me delete, either.
Try resetting your Bridge preferences.
Delete works on the machines I am running. I assume you are talking about deleting files.
Here is something I am noticing that I would like people out there check out.
I am finding that if PS is opening files from " browsing in Bridge" function Bridge memory explodes to 25 gig of RAM The issue I see is Bridge does not release that memory if I close PS when done.
I have a main storage drive that has my photo folder on it.
The folder has 1750 folders 110,000 files approx 1.22 TB of data
When I set Bridge on that folder RAM soars to 47 GIG
If I move it to a smaller folder that committed RAM does not change until I start selecting files in folders.
It appears that Bridge tries to load its entire cache system into memory. No wonder people are having issues.
Hard drive speed or size is not the isssue.
How do I "delete Bridge preferences?"
i have more or less the same problem. For some days Bridge 2021 has been using the CPU to the maximum, sometimes coming to freeze the computer. RAM usage is also high.
Also, high CPU usage is causing the computer's temperature to rise.
I have an iMac 27 late 2017 with i5 and 24 GB of Ram
I can see that being issue. Many people have large libraries.
On my machine I have dual Xeon processors with 32 cores each so CPU cycles are not a issue.
Bridge just appears to do a very crappy job of resource management, Especially when it will grab up to 47 GIG of ram and not let go.
That will freeze 90% of the machines out there.
