I set up import to bring in a large number of files - perhaps 30G worth. The indications looked like it was not going quickly, but I let it run overnight.
In the morning, I found that EagleFiler had stalled, at some point; I had to kill the process. But many files had been imported - about 32,000 - so I decided to try it that way.
Each time I open EF, it takes 2-3 minutes. Then it takes several minutes to re-index. (I want to leave it open all the time, so I trust that those delays will not be important; but they still seem a bit excessive, in terms of your responses to other users, Michael.)
Sometimes the response to a search - always simple, single-word - is almost instantaneous. At other times, the beachball spins and spins…and I go to Spotlight and find what I was looking for quickly.
Now I’m trying to import the balance of my files. I tried to do it in a large clump, as I had done at first; but EF, after a few minutes, started showing up as “not responding” in Activity Monitor, even though it was using 70%-104%(!?) of CPU capacity.
So I backed off and am putting in a few folders at a time. Activity Viewer shows several “barber poles” but Growl notifications of files being inserted are very infrequent. Activity Monitor now says EF is “not responding,” and in fact I can’t command-tab to it; I have to hide obscuring windows to see EF.
I love, and very much need, what EF promises. Any suggestions will be warmly received!
