    I completely forgot to defrag the harddrive with pictures and LR stuff on it for at least 3 or 4 months of moving, adding, deleting files. I just defragged and it's SOO MUCH faster now.

    So keep your drive defragged (PC users) and LR will love you for it

    Does lightroom keep a preview cache like bridge does? That could help too.
