Performance issue on network when searching for tags

Postby bapon » Sun Jan 15, 2017 4:49 pm

Hi,

I have installed xnview 2.39 (Nov 8 2016).
I want to search for tags that are part of the file metadata (like "vacation & spain & louise").
My images are on a private Network drive, so: wifi distance.
I have tons of photos there, so naturally search takes long (hours).
But if I search something else next, it will probably take hours again.
Is there a possibility to load all file Information in a Network subfolder (maybe overnight) to be faster when searching?

Thanks

Bapon

sorry but currently no way, with XnViewMP it can use the catalog to speed up the search

Great thanks.
This sounds like the solution.
Is there a disadvantage to use xnviewMP instead of xnview?
(Windows btw)

Thanks
