Importing favorites - speed and other issues

I trust this has not been dealt with on the forum before.

I purchased UR and got all excited about importing my 500+ IE favorites. After two hours it was still going. I then realised it was indexing each site and when it found a dead link it was taking quite a while to move to the next one. So I said I won't wait any longer I'll cancel, get rid of the dead links and start again. When I cancelled I lost all the stuff imported to date.

So here are my suggestions:-

Keep the imports done up to the time the cancel is pressed. This way the user has a choice about what to do with the downloaded links.

Provide an option where the user can import links without UR indexing them. Then the user can index one or more links at a later time.

There may already ways of doing the above so please point me in the right direction.

Excellent application.

We could provide an option of keeping completed items when cancelling, but the problem with that is there's no easy way to pick up right where you cancelled.

Some things you can do to speed up importing of web pages / favorites:

1) To import web pages without keywording them, remove .html from 'Tools | Options | Import | File extensions to keyword'

This will save the time taken parsing the page for keywords and adding them to UR. But even with this turned off, UR will still access the web site to look for the site icon and to retrieve part of the page for potential summary information (a web page won't have any, but files like images and Word documents could, and it doesn't know what type of document it is without checking). We should probably add an option on the Import wizard to completely bypass retrieval of icons, keywords, summary info, etc. (to allow importing the URL itself without any retrieval at all).

2) To decrease the delay in processing dead links, decrease the timeout values at Tools | Option | Import (More)
