 Fixing a rompath may take quite some time (even several hours for paths with very large amount of games that need fixing). The whole pack-unpack process is very CPU-intensive and constant file reading-writing is very HDD-intensive, so having a fast CPU and SSD will reduced the required fixing time. Fixing a rompath may take quite some time (even several hours for paths with very large amount of games that need fixing).

-Hint: If you have a very large amount of files in a rom path, it may help if you move your games to a separate folder. Then gradually add some games to the rom path, fix them and then add some more, fix them again and repeat the process until all games are in the rom path and fixed. That way each fixing step will take much less time and you will have complete control of the games that are fixed. You can also easily span the fixing process between several days if necessary. This carries a small risk that some games may be fixed several times because they may need files from other games that at a given time may have not yet been added to the rom path. This couuld be avoided by also adding the "separate folder" as a rom path but never "fix" it.+Hint: If you have a very large amount of files in a rom path, it may help if you move your games to a separate folder.
