For the past few months I've had extremley slow load times, consistant crashing, 'Not Responding' messages with simply clicking on an area, and it's getting more frusterating. I honestly do not know how to explain it. I'm using a Z8 Workstation, and I'm using a NvidiaQuadro P4000 Graphics Card. I can provide more info if anyone needs it, but I'm just really confused.
I'm using a 49" LG UltraWide monitor. Is that pulling too much from the Graphics card?
I get similar issues with Lightroom too (where it takes forever to import images). Ironically, my 2015 MacBook Pro loads faster, which adds to my frustation. Any help is appreciated.
Tried restalling and using the cleaner tool?
Post complete comp specs and setup of drives.
What would be the easiest way to post the specs?
Just type them out.
Oh, Sorry. What I meant to ask is 'where do I find these specs'
Just trying to get help in posting my specs
Surly you know what is inside your computer
cpu, disks and setup, OS build....
Try Device Manager.
Oh ok, I didn't know if it stored in a list somewhere:
Here's what it says in Device Manager:
Let me know what other info would be helpful; I tried to export the entire device manager as a txt file, but there was no 'print' option.
Only thing I see is a WD green spinning drive: dont use that other then as backup.
And reinstall as mentioned above.
Ok, I will see what I am using that drive for and get back to you, thanks!
After some digging, I'm finding that Adobe CC itself is loaded on one of the Samsung SSDs , but I'm saving the projects and files themselves on the spinning drive. So, when the project is loading, it's loading from the spinning drive. Would that explain things?
It might if disk permissions have changed.
It also might if the green drive is nearly full.
Not sure about disk permissions; haven't ever touched them. It's only half-full as well.
Do you think upgrading to a SSD will help?
Would it be worth upgrading to the SSD?
Spinning drives are only suited for back up, so yes SSD would be a better option.
Ok cool. I will upgrasde and circle back. Thanks for the help!
