I have had my share of issues with the Content Management Service think I discovered the potential issue which corrupts the data and stops the Sm from working correctly. I have had the CSM crash and stop working many times. I have had to rebuild my Categories library about 5 different times. I wrote a blog article outlining the what seems to cause the problem and how to avoid it.

My Content Management Service has been problem free since.

In your blog you have mentioned that you deleted some hidden file.May i know which file it was. I need to reinstall CMS again cleanly

There is a hidden folder called ProgramData. You have to tell Windows to “show hidden folders/files”. Inside is a DAZ 3D folder and inside of that is the content management services folder with the databases folder inside.

I really can’t advise if you only erase one of those files inside or the whole folder. I erased the whole database folder. Uninstalled DAZ Studio 4.5 and Content Management Service. Then reinstalled everything. But I may have gone overboard. At least that is what I remember. I haven’t had a CMS crash since discovering what was causing the issue.
