Slow/laggy gui to load/save files

Hi, whenever I open a screen to load/save something in wavelab (e.g., the initial screen to open an project), this screen is very slow and it takes half a minute before I can actually select a file. Any idea what is causing this? Perhaps because it is also looking at network drives? But no idea if I can exclude those from being shown? Problem started with WL 11.1
Using Windows 10.

Could be. If such a directory is active in the WaveLab file browser, change to another directory. Then quit WaveLab.

It is not ’ active’. I don’t use any network drives with WL.

While not running WaveLab:

You could try to erase these 2 preference files:
\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\WaveLab Pro 11\Preferences\General.dat
\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\WaveLab Pro 11\Cache\lru.txt

and this folder:
\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\WaveLab Pro 11\Cache\Window Config\

This will reset some preferences but will preserve all your preset.

Hi PG,
Thanks. Your suggestions didn’t make a difference. However, I disconnected my two NAS drives and now the problem seems to be solved. If I find the exact reason for this, I’ll report back here.
