Extermely Long Save Time X7 (Very Annoying!)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm hoping someone might be able to help me. I've been using chief for many years mostly on X2. I recently upgraded to X7 and I love all the additions since. My biggest problem is the save times. They are getting ridiculous! I have to wait almost a full 2 minutes every time I save, and these files are not even that large. They are about the same size as any project I've done on X2.

 

So I was wondering, am I alone on this issue? Or is there others that experience this? Its not any file in particular, its all files. When I save in AutoCAD, it is seconds, now chief takes minutes and it kills my workflow.

 

My computer specs are top shelf, so there should be no reason to take more than a couple of seconds to save these files. I really hope someone can shed some light!

 

Thank you in advance!

 

My computer specs

Windows 10 64-bit

AMD FX 9590 4.7ghZ 8-core processor

32GB RAM

GeForce GTX 960

You definitely have something else going on. It only takes me seconds to save plans no matter how big they are.

You should probably contact tech-support.

If I remember correctly a lot of us had that problem when we first upgraded to X7.  I know it was fixed.

Maybe you don't have the latest release?  IAE do as Michael says and call TS.

I would check your AV settings and make sure Chief Files and Folders are exempted.  That may not be the problem, but it might be.

Hey thanks guys, I needed to call support on another issue, so I asked them about this. The "problem" is saving on a network HDD Personal Cloud. It went to instant saves on my desktop, so I guess I have to save there, then move to the network afterwards...Just incase anyone else has that issue. You can't save to the network with files unless you want extremely long save times.

 

It makes no sense, because every other program I use (including AutoCAD) saves instantly. Annoying, but what can I do, nothing until they fix this issue hopefully.

 

Thanks again for the help!

I have my files on Dropbox.  This works without delay because there is an actual "Dropbox" folder on my HD.

Use OneDrive, all device syncing and cloud uploading is done in the background after the file is saved. Works like a charm!!

What I really like about is that it's baked right into Windows. The OneDrive folder and subfolders all show up in explorer the same as all other files. As such all programs recognize this folder for regular saving, file retrieval, searches and the likes. All other devices, including my Windows phone, update seamlessly no matter which device you are using. You can also control which files are shared with different devices, very useful if you have say a tablet with limited storage. Best to give it a try along with some of the other cloud ones like DropBox and see which suits you best.
