    Deleting AMA Management folder improves MC boot time by over 100%

    I'm running a HP Z820 with a SSD system drive. 

    I did a quick test this morning. It tooks 2:44 from clicking the MC icon til the project load screen.

    After deleting the C:\Users\Public\Documents\Avid Media Composer\AMA Management folder, the boot time improved to 1:07.

    Several months ago while I was on v7, I was experiencing large delays whenever I was switching back from other software to MC. There would be a lag of 15 - 20 seconds before I would gain control of MC.  I got the tip from this forum that if I deleted the AMA Management folder, the lag would disappear, which it did.

    How necessary is the AMA Management folder?  I am considering creating a batch file to delete it on a daily basis and letting MC rebuild it the next day.
