file loads taking foreeevaa
show user profile  Mr_Stabby
Started happening yesterday, loading any max files takes an eternity. At first i thought it just crashed but i left it to it for like 3 hours and when i came back it was done, so weird. Before i go all hatchet mode with reinstalls and such, has anybody experienced that before?

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Could it be bad disc sectors?

only time i've noticed that was with a really material heavy scene (2014)... it was maddening and never found a solution.

I was using 4k textures all over the place, the scene was thick with animation, and there were a bunch of pf sources everywhere. I wonder now if I had my display performance set to 4096 instead of 512

Bingo! I recently set my texture sizes to 16384 since i wanted nice looking reference images for a project i started a few days ago. Set it back to 1024 and all good now.
