Scanning My Entire C Drive

Post by base2bment »

:oops: I recently upgraded my Cubase from 8.5 pro to 9.5 pro. when upgrading i noticed i had to re scan all my vsts as they weren't present on the plugin manager. I sadly didn't fathom how long it would actually take to scan an ENTIRE hard drive at the time and proceeded to simply put "c:" in my plugin manager scanning locations. I can tell you now it has taken over 2 days (left the pc on) to scan. I have tried uninstalling the program but that didn't work. i tried running the program in safe mode and it still wont skip the scanning feature when loading Cubase up.

Is there a way to reset my Cubase's Scanning locations without opening Cubase itself or to just skip the scan on launch? :?:

Hi and welcome,

Trash Cubase preferences, please. Then Cubase will not scan the whole C drive.

I have the same problem and did a big mistake to add the C drive in the plugin Scan folder .
Cubase 10.5 is scanning for about 5 days now , without shutting down my PC ....
Can somebody help me please ?
I don't understand how I must do this : Trash Cubase preferences, please. Then Cubase will not scan the whole C drive.

Hi and welcome,

Cubase preferences folder is located here:
%appData% Roaming/Steinberg/Cubase 10.5_64. Rename this folder. When Cubase will start next time, Cubase will create a new folder with the default settings.
