Description of Issue

Trying to add large library. No matter what I do Roon 1.8 will not add one large folder without freezing (spinning wheel) after adding anywhere between 25 and about 200 files. All screensaver/sleep functions are off. Trying Roon for 90 days but so far countless hours have been spent trying to follow instructions from every other of the many threads of other users who are encountering this problem. Please help!

8gb might be some of your issue for that many tracks.
