Why does it take so long to download the Daedalus wallet?

I have been waiting over 3 hours to download the blockchain on the Daedalus wallet. After updating to the latest version, I have been sitting at 99.67% for over 3 hours.

What’s the deal? There must be something that can be done. I don’t have a cell phone so I can’t use Yoroi or other wallets.

How much RAM has the PC/laptop? Also which OS do u have?

My computer has 12 Gb of RAM. I don’t think that is the problem.

Yeah, indeed should not use 12G but u can check the processes on ur PC

Yoroi and AdaLite can be used straight out of Chrome browser in your PC.
Also, check if you have enough storage space left on the drive (HD/SSD) that Daedalus is on.

Also, make sure you have 4.5.2. version installed. 4.5.1 update caused failure to open and close on some PC. You would have to close it from task manager and reopen.
