I've just started using a new VAIO E Series SVE1511QES and copied all the files from my old laptop at the weekend. No problems with the file uploads and happy with the new laptop until I had a look at VAIO Media Gallery yesterday. Since then the laptop has ground to a halt with the CPU and disk working overtime. VCM Intelligent Analyzing Manager (VIAM) is going through every photo and video I have (>10,000) and creating a new folder for each one with several files in each folder, this is taking forever as it appears to be trawling through the photos several times. The folders being created are (filename).m2ts.files or (filename).MPG.files or (filename).AVI.files. I've suspended VIAM but if I restart the laptop the whole process starts again.
I've checked out VAIO Media Gallery on the internet, the reviews are not great and there doesn't appear to be any real benefit in using it. So, in an attempt to stop VIAM I deleted Media Gallery but VIAM just keeps on going.
The question is how can I stop VIAM doing what it's doing? Why is it trawling through all my photos? Is there any benefit in just letting it run, which will probably take a couple of days?
