One of my EagleFiler libraries seems to be having trouble. When I open it, it takes a while to be ready and then is slow to move from one folder to another.
The size of this library’s Files folder is 8.4 GB. The size of the .eflibrary file is 716.4 MB. It’s a mix of many file types. There are about 30000 files in the library (not including the many folders these files are in)
Is this too big? Should I split it up? Smaller libraries that I use don’t have this problem.
I’m wondering if the problem is that I don’t keep it open all the time. I only open it when I need it, so I’m usually in a bit of a hurry. Right now, I opened it a little while ago to write this message and it has been backing up metadata for some time.
I’m probably getting a new MacPro when the new Apple Silicon ones arrive so I can wait if it’s a slow hardware problem that will be solved by a faster machine.
Thanks for your time.
