Postman 7.24.0 - CPU 83% & Memory very high

I checked this: https://github.com/postmanlabs/postman-app-support/issues/7370
and this: https://github.com/postmanlabs/postman-app-support/issues/7294.

I start Postman and almost immediately it freezes before I can even do anything like delete history or open a collection. I don’t save history anyway, so that should not be an issue.

I have less than 20 collection and only 3 environments.

I closed and opened Postman, and I restarted the laptop.

Now when I run PM, the screen is totally black (!). I can get to my collections by opening a new Postman window.

The image button spins very often.

It is impossible for me to use PM at this point.

Hi @GuyLev

Sorry to hear about the experience with the application. Could you please post this as comments on the relevant GitHub thread below on CPU usage which should help our team look into this further?

With regards to the blank screen and sync issue, could you submit a ticket and share a screen-record of this behavior along with the logs to check on this issue further?

Thank you!

I also had this issue with the current version.
Here is a possible explanation and working solution for users experimenting this today :

In my case, this happened because Postman kept trying to sync my data, but failed to do it (mostly because of corrupted data in my AppData).
I could see it because the Sync spinner in the top right corner kept spinning and remained blue.

Solution:

  1. Save your data ! This is necessary because Postman is failing to sync it…
    You can do it by going in Settings > Data > Download all my data including data in workspaces I have joined.

  2. Move the corrupted Appdata Postman folders to Postman_backup for example (this can still be useful if you forgot to save something…):
    C:\Users<user>\AppData\Local\Postman -> C:\Users<user>\AppData\Local\Postman_backup
    C:\Users<user>\AppData\Roaming\Postman -> C:\Users<user>\AppData\Roaming\Postman_backup

  3. Re-install Postman

  4. Re-import your data by going in Settings > Data > Import Data
