Bulk loading 20 photos in a folder taking forever, and not finished yet

I have a large collection of photos in PSE 2022 Organiser (375GB, 160k photos.) To date it's worked fine. I now find when I bulk import photos (eg 10 photos in a folder) they seem to import, but the thumbanils have hour glasses showing, for hours! (well forever actually as they are still there).   The photos are not huge (eg 5MB each ). I know this can happen if the pixel size is too large, but I have 16GB RAM, so these photos should not be impacted. Is there some other limit that I've hit?   If so how can I deal with this?  Do I need to turn off analysis while loading?  However, at the moment People Recognistion is unticked.  Task Manager says Organiser is using lots of CPU (63%) and GPU (14%) at the moment (11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-11700K @ 3.60GHz 3.60 GHz).

Hi!

You mentioned that it was working before--did you change something? Upgrade software or hardware? How full is your hard drive?

 

Reaching a pixel limit is not your problem--the limit is 30,000 pixels, and you are nowhere near that with a 5 mg file. Does it speed up after you reboot your machine? 

 

Here is a help doc on size limints:https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop-elements/kb/maximum-image-size-limits-photoshop.html

Let us know if this helps, or if you are still having the issue.
