    Scanning new music database: stalling at building text index

    I have posted previously how my particular configuration which I have built up over years at one point included a fatal flaw: a USB controller corrupted 25% or more of my music library and since I didn't know it, it corrupted the back-ups too.

    So recently I have found older backups in my archives that are not corrupted.

    I recently put them into a couple of NAS drives in a hard drive enclosure and have started restoring the UNcorrupted files. There are about 250k files

    I have about 8 TB of files, more or less. I'm using a RAM disk for the Squeezebox database/cache; the RAM disc is 8 GB in size.

    I'm running the latest Windows beta from 10/22/2020 for my Squeezebox software.

    For some reason, the software will not complete the scan: it always stalls at step 2 of 7 of "building the full text index".

    I checked the RAM disc and less than a third of it is occupied.

    I have attached the scanner log.

    Thoughts?

    TIA.

    How much RAM? What memory setting in Settings/Advanced/Performance?

    During the scan, or when idle? How large is your library.db?

    The total system RAM is 16 GB. The CPU is a quad core i7 processor.

    I have the performance set to maximum.

    Since the process stalled, I can say that the total amount of RAM disc use is 2 GB.

    The library.db is 788 mb.

    Thanks.

    What if you left it in "High" mode only?

    What do you consider "stalled"? Is the process still running?
