    I did this and no longer see my presets at all in the Kontakt (6.2.0) browser. In the appropriate folders (which worked, pre-optimisation) there are now .zpreset, .zmulti and .zconfig files. But none of them are visible in Kontakt. I see no .nkc or .nkr files.

    I'm trying to do this with the BBCSO Professional library, and it seems to stop at file 194 of 138271. I left it overnight and it didn't finish.

    With BBC SO Core, I get the same issue as Johm - my user presets are no longer visible in the plugin, after optimising. Also, is this still relevant for SSDs? There should be no jumping around, should there?

    Please be aware, even on an SSD (if it's useful?), this will take hours for a library such as BBCSO Pro. Would be nice to put a warning in the main text about this.

    is it possible to interrupt the process and finish it later?

    I'm just curious as to why the sample files aren't provided in this optimised format to begin with?

    Hi All, 

    My apologies for the slower responses on this particular article. If those unanswered questions above are still relevant, please do get in touch with us via the "help" button.

    1.  Failing to optimise can be due to a corrupt sample file, permissions on the drive and a variety of other issues which is best troubleshooted 1 on 1. 
    2. Regarding interrupting the process Bartek, yes you can interrupt it. It will flash through the now "optimised" files, and resume where it left off.
    3. Danny, the efficiency of this delivery method to help sample loading times was discovered after the initial launch of BBC, which is why these samples are not "pre optimised". Libraries post BBC are all delivered with "optimised" samples. Unfortunately this meant there was not an efficient way to redeliver BBC for all users, however we could provide a utility to fix the issue. 

    Thanks

    Jack

    This takes literally as long as the library took to download, at current rate I'm looking at 19 hours... I'm not sure why there wasn't a default re-written batch sold to customers (like myself) who purchased the product after you discovered the hiccup.

    So, 5 months on from the first query about the time to Optimise, I have calculated 26 hours to Optimise a newly bought SSD. Surely this should be sorted beforehand?
