On1 RAW very slow network/NAS performance

Hi all,

I've always found ON1 RAW performance for photos stored on my network very, vey slow. It takes an age (days) to index and performance doesn't really improve much afterwards. Woe betide I click "show sub-folder content" because it'll most likely lock the app up for 5-10 minutes.

Local cache is on SSD. Around 20,000 photos.

Doing a bit of research it appears that whenever a file is "touched", ie: I see it in the browser On1 updates the corresponding .on1 sidecar file. This means that even though I have a local cache (for thumbnails etc) it doesn't really help much as the network traffic is immense anyway.

Is this what others are experiencing?

I am trialing having my photos locally and using Syncthing to sync them up to my server. So far this seems far more responsive, but does seem to me to defeat the point of a local scratch/browse cache.
