Always generating thumbnails or previews

I have to do extensive metadata editing in Bridge and it is almost impossible. Bridge is constantly generating prevews or thumbnails and either takes forever or just times out, especially over a server. Have tried all combination of cache / preview / preferences and nothing helps. If I'm in the same folders with the same images why does it constantly have to keep generating the same preview over and over? Impossible to work and causing lost time and money.

I have had similar problems.  Sometimes Bridge gets so far behind in just writing the new metadata that some of what I thought I had edited is never written to the individual xmp files.

You'll get a lot better results working locally. Editing files on a server opens up a whole different host of potential problems.

All of my work is done locally and it is still annoying.  I do use external drives, but they are local.
