I see I’m not the only one having problems with the wallet restore. Big problems but I’ve got other computers to use while this sorts. That’s important because twice now I’ve launched an application (iMac with latest Mojave) it does not launch. The icon bounces for a few minutes then stops. If I click on it again…nothing. No bounce. If I go to the Force Qut Applications window there I see it listed as running, not “unresponsive”. If I select the app and click on Force Quit it asks me to confirm I do but nothing happens. If I launch Terminal and go into Top the apps are not listed which means they are not running but the apps are still listed in the Force Quit window. I’ve never seen anything like this.
What is this Daedalus app doing? I understand it’s not syncing with the block chain but is doing something with the data on my computer. Correct? It’s consuming a lot of resources. I’ve got most of my apps quit and I’m using 11 of 16GB of RAM. Cached files are at about 5GB. Swap file is at about 23%, never seen it so high.
What is going on and what actions can I take? Can I quit Daedalus? Can I restart the Cardano Node? Can I reboot my computer? I don’t want to screw the process up and corrupt any data. I certain don’t want to start over again. I’m more than 8 hours into it. I actually have work to do using the apps that will no longer even attempt to launch. I’m afraid to try to launch any more apps for fear the same thing will happen to them.
