importing photos

Post by mdadvice » 26 Aug 20 15:26

Importing and synchronizing photos takes a very long time. The database is already big (173.000 photos RAW-format) - one catalog. I'am importing from an sd-card to a USB 3.0 Hard Disk (WD elements) - there is not big difference If I should copying to my sd-hard disk.
Is this normal ? Are there tips for accelerating this process ?

First of all, make sure that your catalog folder is excluded from all installed virus scanners. If you’re using Windows, then don’t forget to also exclude the folder from Windows Defender.

And Compact the databases if not done recently.
