4.6 on Vista Business sync to 9000 is incredibly slow

My Outlook has 2177 addresses, the sync is taking over an hour each time just to do the contacts not to mention the calendar.

 

Also, If I cancel the sync it locks the phone and I have to remove the battery to restart it.

 

Should I downgrade to a prior version of desktop manager or is there something that can be done to resolve this?

 

Any info much appreciated

In my experience, DM 4.5 'might' be faster.

 

Using DM 4.6, I have actually seen the sync get faster after a few uses, it doesn't make sense, but it has. 

 

It could just be me.

I am having the same problem on XP. Much slower than DM 4.2. This has got to be a bug or some seriously inefficieint code in the DM.

I just switched from 4.2 to 4.6 with my new Bold and sync takes minutes now instead of seconds, no change in the amount of info being synced. This is a complete letdown and failure in my opinion. Other than going back to 4.2 (or 4.3?) not sure what to do. I tried using the english-only version without the media manager. Media manager by the way is a total disaster- completely unusable on a laptop as it sucks up the CPU for hours.
