Slow saving and loading, but only inside the Daz studio folder structure

mats76mats76 Posts: 277

Daz studio has become slower the last 2 weeks or so for me, loading,saving and selecting items in scene tab. Today I figured out that my Daz studio only is slow when saving inside my daz 3d library and my library, for example saving a weareble outfit took 9 seconds when saving to my library/presents/wearebles while saving the same outfit to the rootfolder of the drive took less then a second. 

If anyone have a clue it would be much appriciated.

    I would suspect corrupted files or sectors, so not a DAZ problem per se, have you scanned your HDD?

    Do you have a backup of your DAZ Library, preferable on an external drive?

    My first troubleshooting step would be to delete the library. Defrag the Disk overnight, and reinstall off the BAK first thing in the morning

    A Defrag by itself obviously wont solve corrupted files, but it would eliminate bad sectors if thats whats slowing you down.

    Thank you for the advice.

    It is a 2 tb SSD and is only slow to save in my daz 3d library and my library, saving to any folder outside of the Daz structure on the same drive works as it should. Could corrupt files affect  saving as it is creating a new file? 

    Daz studio itself is installed on te C drive (also ssd) and my daz 3d library and my library on the bigger ssd and maybe that can cause the issue somehow?

    Update: I made a new My Library folder on one of my another ssd drive and tried to save a wearble to that folder instead, that worked and saving went super quick. So I made the new My Library folder the official one inside studio: content directory manager, the result was that saving to the new My Library folder became super slow.

    So something inside studio is causing this.

    When you save something outside of a known content directory it saves with absolute paths, while inside a known content directory it uses relative paths.  I can't see any reason there would be a drastic time difference between them.  Does it happen for anything you save?

    Is the CMS (database) monitoring or indexing or something? I'm on my phone atm otherwise I would do some testing myself (will do so as soon as I have the time). In general, I've also experienced slowdowns (more than just due to the amount of content I have) for loading figures, applying poses, undoing actions, etc.

    It is not the same diffrence when saving properties for example, that it is about 50% slower. What I have noticed is that about 2 weeks ago everything in daz has suddely a bit of delay.

    Choosing a character in scen tab has a deley whit windows blue spinning circle showing up. Loading G3M that used to load almost instantly (use it only for clothing convertion so almost no morphs installed) takes 10 times longer to load and causes studio to take a 1-2 minute not responding break with the windows spinning blue circle appear.

    How do I check if CMS is indexing, monitoring?

    My issue with slowdowns, delays suddenly appeared from one day to another, the usual slowdown from a huge library I have learned to live with (most of the time anyway smiley)

    You will see multiple instances of postgres.exe running in the processes tab of the Task Manager (Windows) - this is CMS.

    In some quick testing, I didn't notice any difference when saving inside my content directory vs. outside the content directory but on the same drive.

    Thank you for explaining yes

    I have 9 postgres.exe running in Task manager, but only 1 of them uses processor power (18%) when saving.
