I accidentally ran my Android Studio project on an emulator (for a different device) instead of my real device (forgotten I unplugged it), and the whole computer froze/ran out of memory. No big deal I thought, I turned off my computer and started it again.
However, now when I start Android Studio, I run into problems. It first says
indexing for a very long time (like 10 minutes+), then it goes to
Building symbols also for 10 minutes+, until it warns me about
low memory and eventually runs out of memory.
out-of-memory error window gave me the opportunity to increase the memory limit and I tried increase the memory field to 2000 (from 1200 something), and that is where I am now, still building symbols 20 minutes later. Edit: Now it ran out of memory again.
Note that before, when I start Android Studio, everything was set up within minutes
What should I do? Do I have to reinstall Android Studio? Should I change these memory settings to something else, or clean up Android Studio settings somehow?
