Preview cacheing cause XnView freezing

Post by Micha » Thu Sep 13, 2012 1:27 pm

Hi,

since browsing image folders can be quite slow, if the image preview isn't cached, I thought, I could enable "show images of sub folders" (I use the german XnView, so the name can be wrong here) and let create a cache file for all my images at a fast RAM drive. After a short time XnView hangs. Is it a bug? The current cache file is 20MB.

Regards,
Micha

I'm not sure, but I think yes. Is there a way to find, which file was the last scanned?

When you start Browser, press ESC to stop thumbnail building. Perhaps you can see which file has no thumbnail?
