So far, it has downloaded 75,105 files, it is parsing 28,085 and it has 306 in queue. OE is pretty much using 100% of the CPU and is currently at 219MB of memory usage.
It seems strange to me that 75,000 files is putting such a strain on an application that is supposed to be able to handle up to 100,000,000 files!
Any thoughts or suggestions?
To speed up parsing files, I would suggest you to uncheck "Evaluate script calculations" and "Explore HTML forms" settings in the Project Properties dialog | Advanced.
Besides, you need to check the "Prevent directories from overloading" box in the Options dialog | File Locations. Otherwise storing thousands of files in a single directory makes Windows very slow when accessing that folder.
