Very Slow Start Up Every Launch of Vuze
#1
Question 
Shortly after downloading the I2P helper plugin my Vuze install crashed.

When I restarted I got the usual "Vuze didn't save so I can't load" dialogue.  I hit OK per usual.

Then I get a screen without the Plug-in Bar I have turned on and in the sidebar the Device Playback and Plugins and Extras don't show.  Most of the Status Bar is empty or showing 0 up and down.  The main area has a large blue frog logo and a progress bar that is hard to read but appears to be rebuilding the Library index and since I have allot of torrents that takes a long time, like over 10 minutes.  For a third of that time it just seems to sit there and do nothing.

"Oh well," I thought "it just has to do this to recover"

It has been doing it every time I launch  or relaunch Vuze and this is getting annoying.  It is taking longer than I am often downloading a file with the connection I have.

Any Ideas to fix this without borking my list of torrents in the library?  I would usually just reinstall but the last 2 times I did that I lost my library so every issue I have run into I have been forced to clean install and start from scratch.

Thanks in advance.

Why do you have to have all those torrents in your Library, that is causing most of this problem as Vuze has to check all the files, Now if these are just single file torrents that is fine, but if they are music or Karaoke torrents you could have hundreds if not thousands of files all of which have to be checks for errors every time Vuze loads. It is so simple to select all and then the option to remove them from the library without deleting the actual torrent file.

The data remains safe and so does the torrents and can be re loaded at any time.

It is never a good idea to run too many torrents anyway as your upload speed is but a fraction of the download bandwidth and you need it for uploading to any swarm you are downloading from for good download speeds. Running dozens of downloads and seeding files all at once reduces the average speed of your downloads to dial up speeds for each active downloading torrent as you have no upload bandwidth left for each swarm.

Well it is like this. It started off origninally my library files would all download to the same folder on one of my drives... now they are spread to multiple folders on multiple drives and the library is how I keep track of them as well as manage up/downloads.

The other point I should make is that according to Vuze it is just over 1300 files and I have had several times that and never had this happen before and I have had over 3000 files in Vuze before.  I have also never had to wait for 14 min for Vuze to recover from a crash before either.  Each Plugin takes an age to initialize.

*Facepalm* I bet I know what it is now... I am using a portable version (used to work better on my encryped drives than the main client did and could never figure out why, and I am betting that I am hitting an artificial limitation in the faux registry.

I will have to try thinning out what I can and see if that fixes it.  Thanks for the reply.

Well the Windows file manager is not very good at handling large numbers of files, and Vuze even less so. Each open file requires CPU and Memory to look after it, so in this case a bit of housekeeping would seem to be long overdue. Archive material you are not watching or seeding. Never run more seeding files than you upload bandwidth can handle. Never download more than one torrent at a time. If a torrent is not downloading or seeding then remove it from your client using the tool provided. You can keep the data and the torrent, just remove the file from the Vuze library. Then I would recommend you install advanced uninstaller pro from here: http://www.advanceduninstaller.com/ Do not download this software from any other source such as C-Net as it may contain other software you do not want.

and run the daily health check. You can disable the daily health check if you do not wish to keep it after 30 days, it is not malware. The rest of this brilliant software is freeware. Then go to the registry tools and run the registry cleaner and then the registry optimizer which will re boot your machine. If Vuze continues to give problems, use the general tab to uninstall it then re install the latest version using the default settings.

Hope that helps.
