Excruciatingly slow performance. Has something failed?

Excruciatingly slow performance. Has something failed?

I imported 1602 notes from Evernote. I received the email to say that the import was complete. The web version reports 1599 notes in the designated import folder. The Win desktop version reports 1445.

The first problem is that every note in the web version takes an age to load but it gets there eventually.

The second problem is that after 18 hours the desktop version is still apparently synchronising but the note count hasn't moved from 1445 since very early on.

I have a very fast internet connection.

Is this all normal for a largish import or has something failed?
