My lightroom is insanely slow

Hello all, 

 

First post here, 

 

I have spent the last few days trying to get my lightroom to be a bit faster, its running rediculously slow.

I have tried following Adobe's own guidelines to speed it up with things like the XMP, raw cache, optimise catalogue etc but nothing is working. It's almost becoming unusable to be honest. I first noticed it starting to slow down probably around a year ago or whenever it was it went to 9.x.x

 

So its Lightroom Classic. My laptop specs as follows - 

 

Intel Core i7-6700 2.6gh

16gb RAM

GTX 960m 4gb video card

500gb M.2 SSD (which is where all my photos, catalogue, cache etc is located)

1TB secondary HD

 

As you can see my laptop should be more than capable of running lightroom. 

 

The problem is throughout all of LR, cycling through the library filmstrip, importing and in the devolpment module. 

 

I have 120gb+ of RAW photos in my library.

 

So can anyone shed any light on where I can start to look to speed this up?? Even going through my library and trying to delete some of the images is proving a massively labourious process in terms of the amount of time it takes even to navigate through. 

 

Thanks

The first thing that you should try is to switch off the GPU support from the Lightroom preferences and check if that helps to fix the issue.

Go to Lightroom > Preferences > Performance tab > Uncheck "Use Graphics Processor" > Restart Lightroom.

What actions in the develop module are slow?

 

How big is your monitor, in pixels?

How much free disk space is there available on this drive, you need to have at least 25% free i.e. 125GB if it goes lower than this you will see progressive slowdown.

Consider moving your photos to the secondary drive, catalogue, cache etc should remain there.
