Default Relink takes forever...PT 9.05

same problem with two projects:
automatic relink needs hours wih no success and blocks PT.

even when directing PT onliest to the correct folder
(on an internal HD )
automatic relinking takes forever ,
i have to manually relink file for file
which works then, but is PITA if i have a lot of files.

The session came from a PT 6.4.1 mix rig on 10.3.9
BWav , PC compatibility checked
via an FAT32 formatted USB device

The other Session is coming from an AVID AAF(newer ones)
and contains an OMFI Files Folder where scanning and
relinking also blocks PT complete for hours while scanning.
PT reacts sluggish and playback is impossible.
This session is on an FW 800 HFS drive.

any ideas?

PT 9.05
10.6.8 , Aggregate device ,
5 HD à 1,5 TB
Nehalem 8-core , 8 GB

Don't try to automatically find and relink. You've already discovered that manual relinking is much quicker. If all your media files are in the same location, you should be able to find the links for all of them and relink them all at once.
