SNAP 8 freeze

Hello everyone
I just upgrade my SNAP 6 to SNAP 8.

the old version was working very well

but this it download many files with no stop when I run a calculation!?

this step take many hours till I stop the process.

N.B: I kept my old auxdata files so no need to download file orbits or DEMs.

it consumed more than 5Gb of data :frowning:

I downloaded the DEMs files manually and put them in auxdata folder but when I run the calculation SNAP delete the file!? and it start to download the files again and again with no STOP!

what is the problem with this version?

@lveci was the new SRTM 3Sec link already implemented in an update and this is a new issue?

in fact I used SRTM 1Sec HGT .
1- I used my old DEMs.
2- deleted the old once and let SNAP download automatically
3- I downloaded DEMs manually.
But didn;t works

Finally I decided to uninstall SNAP and re-install it again but with the first choice of DELETING old user data.
and SNAP8 look it works good.

Many thanks for you ABraun and all SNAP team.


this would mean that some parts of the problems were not fully solved by the update

Yes you right Mr ABraun but as a simple user it is a solution and for a developer or SNAP technical team it is not a solution.

I agree. The work around is good, but not feasible for the majority of users. I hope this can also be fixed with an update.
