I’m running 3.0 and my asset blend files are stored on a new external drive.
If I start up with the drive plugged in Blender freezes for around 20 mins when selecting a new file or opening a existing one.
If the drive is not plugged in Blender starts up straight away and will open a new our existing file straight away.
If i then plug in the external drive, Blender freezes for the 20 mins.
My Asset path is set to a folder on the external hard drive F:\BLENDER ITEMS\3.0 ASSETS\ and in that folder I have 9 blend files, each with a texture map folder and folder for custom thumbnail previews.
So is using a external drive a big no no for storing asset files or is my setup not ideal?
I’d really like to keep the assets on the extrnal if possible.
any Help would be great.
