Over the past couple of week my Lightroom, LR4, has been slow to fire up and when it does get up takes even longer for the first adjustment that I make to render. Now over the past couple of days it has been locking up on me in mid post. Any help out there was to what could be causing this issue?

Thank you

Hmm, it sounds like you are having system problems, unfortunately too common and you need some "know-how" to troubleshoot. You'll want to learn about a few tools to do this and fix it, depending on your OS, try posting in the "Computers" sub-section here to get more help and info!:

For me, one of the biggest performance improvements I saw in Lightroom was when I dramatically increased the cache size. I think the default is like 1GB. Crank it up to something like 20GB and you should see an improvement.

If you convert to DNGs with Quick Start Data the CR Cache isn't used at all.

Interesting. I'll have to look into that. I convert to DNG but I don't know about Quick Start Data. I'm pretty sure I chose whatever DNG option keeps the smallest file size.

Wow 20 GB of cache. I'll have to try that
