Re: Lightroom 4.1 performance improvement tip

One thing to beware - when I renamed my original Lightroom folder, Lightroom reverted to an old catalog. The same happened when I renamed the preferences file. I was able to select the current catalog manually, but it caused a moment's anxiety because I wasn't expecting it.

In my case the procedure didn't make any difference. Images take 5 to 7 seconds to load into the Develop module, but otherwise performance is fine. I started using Lightroom with LR4 Beta, so I can't say if LR4 is much slower than LR3 would have been on my system.

(I have a Win7 Core2 Quad Q6600, 8GB memory, single hard disk. I.e. good for three years ago but hardly state of the art.)
