    Sigh. Clearing it, triggered the sync.... which took 7 minutes. And HIT Finder was the same - useless during sync. But maybe I will try closing it altogether and seeing if not sync when closed.

    My next step would probably be to reinstall MTS. Backup your Finder favorites/blocks, remove the extension, make sure its folder is gone, (reboot, probably) and then install a fresh copy.

    If it persists after that, maybe one of your other extensions conflicts with it. You could disable extensions one by one and see if that fixes it.

    That's too overwhelming to think about...sounds like a weekend project. Plus, I am terrified of doing something wrong and making it worse. Not what anyone would call a computer whiz.... But thanks for the suggestion. I'm saving the post.

    sounds like you've got low RAM? MTS was super slow for me until I upgraded to 12GB. It used to be excruciating just to catch hits, you have to remember that your finder is constantly trying to run searches so the more power the better...

    I'm usually finding myself reinstalling MTS once or twice a year for one reason or another.

    I am a Mac person and I have 8GB 1600 mhz ddr3. Definitely an older computer though. I am sure I will be needing an upgrade soon.

    All this MTS update talk I gotta share my situation. My old desktop still running windows 7, I have to sync all the time. My brand new laptop running windows 11 home, I never have to. If I hit sync it's done in a few seconds. If I do a hit on my desktop and go to my laptop, my daily total is already updated but it doesn't make forker or anything lag.

    Wow! So basically they are saying we are going to pay you garbage and if you want to stay doing hits with us you are not going to toss it back. That's harsh!

    My MTS completely crashed a while ago. Since then I am exporting my favorites on the finder as the last thing to do everyday. I would suggest exporting favorites and then reinstalling everything back like I did at at that time.

    I am going to have to go with this answer from @rathalos420. I just nuked my HiT Tracker DB folder and reinstalled MTS a few days ago and now syncing is super fast for me.

    I don't know how Mac's work, but In Windows, the HIT Tracker database folder is hidden deep down.

    This is where mine is located. Bold/underlined sections are custom to me. C:\Users\josh\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Profile 6\Extensions

    Edited for clarity.

    That sucks. It's a good idea to do regular backups, but you shouldn't need to export your favorites or blocklist that often, unless of course you are adding everyday.
