CS6 E Bridge Slow to load thumbnails, 'building criteria'

When Bridge opens on the folder it was last opened/closed in, it takes a long time to load, constantly 'building criteria' as if all the images are newly imported. I've searched the forums, have tried all the tweaks and settings, but it's still iceberg slow.  Bridge CS5 is noticeably quicker, as if the cache info is being read immediately. CS6 is behaving as if the cache file has been deleted. It hasn't. I have tried the "flush the cache" to see if maybe it's corrupted. No joy. I have boosted cache size. No joy. I've compacted, automatically exported cache to folders, everything... Nothing seems to fix the snail slowness.

All Adobe updates have been applied.

Your fix is inadequate.

It is so slow as to be useless.

Also you have to "do something" to get Bridge to change. I waited 90 seconds and thought I'd do something else, when I closed the something else and put the focus back to Bridge the building criteria was complete.

I am at Bridge 8.0.1.282. Mac High Sierra 10.13.2, 3.5 Ghz i7, 24Gb 1600Mhz DDR3.

Just done another example, 32 seconds for a folder containing 42 items.

Go away and think again how you can support your paying customers.

An added thought.

32 seconds is an improvement over never but in today's world 2 seconds is regarded as an unacceptable delay.

I will not hold my breath for 8.0.1.283

A comparison

Using Finder

78 folders containing 7213 image files.

Find all .PSD files and show Thumbnails.

So fast I cannot measure it.

That is what I expect, and pay for.

Using Bridge CS6, I deleted all of my 'favorites' and just use 'folders' for navigation, the problem resolved immediately.

Has anybody solved this problem yet? Or are we (well for me luckily my employer) still paying for a product that doesn't work?

Just updated to latest CC2018 version and it is still terribly slow.

Example:

Folder with 405 illustrator files, all thumbs/previews generated. On opening it takes:

Bridge CS4 - 2 second to open and start working with 15 items in favorites, metadata, filter, keywords all on

Bridge CC2018 - 20 seconds to stop "generating previews" with everything off as suggested solutions in this (and other) treads.

Is the only real solution to stop using Bridge or to use versions up to CS5?

I have set catching to each folder, limited files to 500 per folder, stopped using sub-folders and added a SSD drive.

It has helped but Bridge is still just plain slow rebuilding cache data.
