Can anyone help me to understand what’s happening with Cubase 5.5.2 and the Media files scan?
Prior to 5.5, I can’t remember this happening, but now, every 2 weeks or so, as I close down Cubase, I get the alert that it’s scanning and updating Media files. This will not get anywhere. And I have to abort. This will crash and hang Cubase. So anyway, after searching this site and others, I’ve discovered that I’m not alone in my frustration. So, following advice, I close down virus software, and finally, it will scan. I eventually found the time to let it complete which took around 2 hours or so! So now, it’s fine again. But I know this will all repeat in a couple of weeks. Madness. I’ve unchecked all the unimportant folders and drives, so it’s only checking the relevant folders as far as I’m aware.
Surely there is a way to disable this feature, or better still, speed it up. This is a major inconvenience to say the least. But as I say, not one I’ve noticed on earlier versions.
Can anyone shed light onto what’s happening, and why? And what determines when it scans?
