Have folder of 500+ Jpg pictures. when in Library module and scrolling thru pictures using scroll wheel, The pictures are pix-ul-lated, as expected. then the system freezes and the screen goes white. Like the buffer is empty, or waiting to refresh.  Is there a option to increase the buffer size? Or could it be thumb nails are being rebuilt? pictures are in a 2014 folder. Could it be the Hard drive?  I see in catalog settings, the Smart Preview is at 1MB. is this when the thumb nails are kept.  Just trying to improve my work flow experience.

Is the harddrive which contains the 2014 folder an internal drive, external USB drive, or network attached storage device? Is LR set to create 1:1 previews? If so they expire after 30 days (you can change how long they're kept in Catalog Settings) by default and LR will need to rebuild them after that time.

Drive is internal. Don't believe the 1:1  but smaller?  Will look and see.
