    Media Composer 6.5 responding slowly after being stable for a year

    Hello - I have two 6.5.2 MC with Nitris DX on Z400s/64bit W7 and one of them has started to respond very slowly. Both use the same Terrablock 24x (in multiwrite mode). The media is 720p and it's a combination of P2 media and footage grabbed form tape. The codec is DvcproHD. When we start editing it's fine and then it progressively gets slower within about an hour. You click on almost anything and there's a delay of a few seconds. If you hit space bar, it's takes a few seconds to play. The keyboard has also checked out a few times, but it will work in other applications. I've checked the QT/Nvidia matrix and it's correct (it was off with QT 7.7.2, but I installed 7.7.3 with no change). We've run a full hardware diagonostic and it found nothing. We've reinstalled MC, updated the ATTO drivers to the Terrablock... nothing helps. Any ideas on other things to look at???

    And wow, didn't know about Larry. That is a huge loss for us all. :(

    When the sluggishness begins, run the Microsoft Resource Monitor application (start->run. Type 'resmon', hit enter.)  


    This will give you a much more granular view of where your system resources are being used than task manager. It sounds to me like you have a running application with a memory leak  or cpu/disk resource problem.

    It's just the one system?  Are they working on the same projects?  Do any of the media folders for this specific system have a very large number of files?
