I just used RB, after a night that was running in the background.
And again the same problem. I did not even pre-listen:
I did a scroll in the list and when I found a track without the intro. Try to right click with the idea of opening tracktool, but the program is hung. 30 seconds later everything went back to normal. And since then it worked well.
The strange thing is that the program hangs when "Double click" (for the pre-listen) or right click (for the popup).
At 2 o'clock in the morning a new list is loaded by the scheduler.
Maybe the metadata scan was never done. (It's a guess)
In the capture that I enclose the use of the disk perhaps it is not so big (Too late in making the capture). But as soon as I opened the task manager I saw that RB was in "Orange" (Indicating that he is using the maximum read or write capacity, I saw 7 Mb of transfer almost all the time)
When you load a playlist, it reads the tracks metadata in the background. The process is not intensive and will not impact PC performance at all. Unless the PC is very slow and/or loaded with other tasks.
It is a new PC with i3 7th generation and 4 gb of Ram I think it should be more than enough
Minimizing does not affect anything. Unless you have some other software installed that somehow intercepts minimizing/maximizing and does something (I remember such case in the past when a user had alternative Start menu installed and it resulted in weird RadioBOSS crashes).
The installation is clean and there are only popular programs installed such as Chrome, SQL, Teamviewer, etc.
There is nothing that can affect the normal functioning of Windows.
