Abnormal HDD activity after launch MAX (maxdb-journal file) (SOLVED)
Apr 04 2021 | 11:56 pm
Today observed strange behavior with 8.1.10, by some reason after launch MAX there is start abnormal HDD activity (up to 100%) and this is continues endlessly, until i exit program resp.
Then i started to catch reason, thru Microsoft Procmon i found that program endlessly refresh\recreate one file in folder: C:\Users\*****\AppData\Roaming\Cycling '74\Max 8\Database\
Filename: "d--program files-cycling '74-max 8-max.x64.maxdb-journal"
Never seen such problem before, though can't say that often used Max in last times, but anyway. Ofcourse, before, hdd activity after the start of the program was naturally always present in one way or another (especially at the first start during one session of loading Windows), but usually ended quickly. Now there is clearly some problem.
What could be the reason ?
I almost did not change the settings (at least everything related to the location of the files - everything is by default).
Win10 (1909) 64bit here , Max launched with admin rights.
