    Hello Dion Kara,

    I hope you are doing well today!

    WP Smush bulk smush can take hours/days to run depending on name attachments. I can see that you have 6K+ image. So it might be take much time to smush it. It also depends on your server capasity. It goes as fast as your server can process them, avoiding crashing it by not running multiple in parallel. You can smash image using “DIRECTORY SMUSH” so that you can smash much image at a time and it will save your time.

    Have a great day!

    kind regards,
