Large file counts and large files (files that are hundreds of megabytes in size) are the common causes of such hangs.
The UI will hang due to the scanning being done within the UI's "thread". Theoretically, the scan will complete given enough time. Theoretically!

You can configure GameSave Manager to skip scanning of troublesome records by using the /ignore commandline and passing the record's name along side it.
For example:

Code: Select all

gs_mngr_3.exe "/ignore Battlefield 3"
gs_mngr_3.exe "/ignore Minecraft (full)"
gs_mngr_3.exe "/ignore TitleHere"
