Hi, the past couple weeks, I’ve noticed that database updates for KSCF tend to use so much hard drive activity that it practically locks everything up while it’s running the update. This never used to happen. I came to the forums to see if I could find a solution and thought I did with a thread that told me to uninstall any and all incompatbile software. This made the UI a lot more responsive and seemed to fix the update issue for a day or two.
Then, it returned. The UI is still a lot more responsive since I removed the incompatible software but the update issue using heavy amounts of disk activity is still very prevalent. I had to change the update interval from automatic to every 3 hours because it was getting so bad.
I’ve begun to wonder if, when running these updates, the disk is already at a heavy load and thus the updates are just failing and retrying over and over again. The reason I think this is because I notice that when I have long load times or when my system freezes on me, usually it shows KSCF running updates at 0% and a lot more often than every three hours.
Is there anything I can do to fix this issue? It’s really making me question whether I should continue using KSCF. I love the features but the performance impact is incredibly frustrating.
Thanks in advance for any help that can be given.
