Has anyone else experience a dramatic increase in the time Cura takes to 'Prepare' files for printing?

Mine used to take around 1 minute for an average sized file but since the update the same file takes around 20 mins

    Yes what version. There are issues with the latest Cura with:

    1) virus scanners - they try to scan the executable part of cura called "steamEngine.exe". You might want to add it to your virus scanner exception list. Or just turn the stupid thing off, uninstall it, and burn the disks.

    2) SD card auto scanning. The new Cura searches for SD cards automatically. Some people have dozens of USB devices or other issues that makes this code run very slow. You can disable this feature in Cura.

    Both should be fixed in the latest download version.

    If the 13.06.X version suddenly got slower with a certain model, I would like to know. As I had some speed issues in early versions, but I managed to fix them.
