Loading levels is extremely slow only on my PC

Hi everyone! I’m currently working on a project and the rest of the team doesn’t have any problems loading levels, it’s just me. It takes between 35-40 minutes to open a level while for the rest it takes 2-3 minutes.

Reading the logs I noticed that it takes longer when prints the messages with “Built static mesh”. This is a chunk I got while loading the same levels for both computers. There is no big difference in terms of hardware, both have Windows 8.1, 24GB of ram, SSD, the DerivedDataCache folder is pointing to the same server, we both run the level from Visual Studio and the Unreal version is 4.10.1.

My PC vs his PC
173.27s vs 28.52s
64.96s vs 10.77s
88.13s vs 16.20s
119.28s vs 21.24s
135.67s vs 23.79s
91.38s vs 16.18s

Do anyone know what is the reason for that?

PD: It wasn’t the first time I opened the level, in fact, I loaded completely the level, closed Unreal and loaded it again for that log.

Hey buddy, is your problem solved? Recently, my project seems to have encountered the same problem as yours. If possible, can you leave your solution?
