Setup: Folders on a networked drive. Attempting to move JPG and PNG images from a root folder to a sub folder.
What am I doing wrong aside from attempting to use Bridge at all? This is beyond useless and well into the realm of actively hindering work activity. I wanted(ed) to avoid using the OS for managing the images, but considering in the same duration of time it took to migrate the four images above with Bridge, I was able to render thumbnails and move more than two dozen using the OS.
So, sadly, I will continue to ignore the presence of Bridge. I remember it being the 'go-to' a few years ago for me. It has apparently become bloated, slow, and non-functional for a core feature that I relied on.
If anyone has suggestions on how to drastically improve the performance of this application, I welcome them. In the meantime, Bridge is once again being banished from the taskbar.
You are correct, Bridge is not usable on a networked drive. THAT's the issue.
Bridge has never been engineered to work on Network or Cloud-based systems. It was built for, and is intended for, hard drive access (on your computer, external hard drives, etc.)
I suggest you look for programs that were designed to work on such systems because Bridge is not it.
Thank you for the response and the sad confirmation that what I am doing wrong is attempting to use Bridge with my setup.
I use Bridge extensively on networked drives and have few problems. HOWEVER there is no way for Adobe to work around server and network issues. I spent years in IT and some networks are a disaster, and even a well-designed network will have performance variations depending on usage and other factors. This is why Adobe doesn't support most network use and it may or may not function well.
