Building Thumbnails - Twice

Post by MikeNaylor » 07 Dec 17 14:48

Immediately after importing a batch of images, I execute the Convert Metadata to XMP command. Most times, this quickly runs through the entire batch as expected. Other times however, it chooses to rebuild some of the thumbnails. This should be unnecessary and it slows down the process considerably. I'm not watching the Activity all the time, but I think it only applies to large PSD and TIF files. This behaviour seems odd and wonder if anyone else has experienced this.

Adding to the above: Whist this was happening, click on another folder and PSU aborted with an Access Violation (0). So, I began redoing the entire operation again, but splitting the 1243 import into smaller batches. The same thing is happening - the Activity showing Convert Metadata to XMP, Synchronize Service and Building Thumbnails, all at the same time (stalling for 40 seconds or so). The files sizes are over 1GB in most cases.
