DCU 5.x generates a lot of GB of data (cache) Win7: user -> appdata -> pentax. The cache file could be 20-30 GB. I had always the crash when the drive C was full (because of that cache).
DCU 5.x is slow "by default" . I use it on i7-4810MQ, RAM 32GB and SSD and after post-processing of ca. 20 photos, the software slows down. Even at the beginning, it does not work fast.

One of the recommendation is DO NOT use or limit utilization of feature "show dark/bright portions".

Will test out the new version (5.6.1) of DCU tonight. One of the listed improvements sounds promising:
  • Corrected - Performance become slow or not performed at some environment of usage.

Seems like 5.6.1 is a good release. Nice and responsive on my machine, where the previous version wasn't.
