Could anyone (possibly Mick if you are about) who uses NX2 and Photo Mechanic tell me what figures you set in the PM Preferences-Cache menu.
Thanks

Here are my PM Cache settings:

They seem to work fine on my Win 7-64 bit machine with 8GB ram. I've never had a problem with PM using these.

Many thanks Mick, my machine is the same spec as yours.
As I had the PM default set for cache I just wondered if I should look into it further.
(Some time ago you gave me some other PM settings which I use)

ps I guess you are using PM 5 as my latest PM 4 does not have any selections after the Memory Cache Size box?

Yes, David, those setting were from PM5. The settings for PM 4.6.9 are:

Memory cache size is still there. Sort Cache size is a new setting in V5.

If you're using something older than 4.6, you should consider upgrading. V5 is very nice.

For what it's worth, my Disk Cache is 512MB and my Memory Cache is 256 MB. I did not see any obvious difference in performance.
