"indexing Items" unbearably slow

I recently had to recreate one of my databases by exporting and importing and now I see it is “indexing items” which seems never to complete (days already). I don’t understand what this since I can already search all text in the database and it is interfering with the web archiving process from the browser.

No idea what to do.

Importing files will be reindexed to ensure the index is up to date.

  • Are you importing into the same database?

  • What are the File > Database Properties for the database?

“Are you importing into the same database?”

No…because of corruption I had to create a new one.

" What are the File > Database Properties for the database?"

That menu item is greyed out…cannot access

Also, the indexing now seems to be stuck on the same item.

Really need help since it is very difficult to archive docs like this.

Bear in mind, we have some people on Easter holiday so I can’t say how soon something will be addressed. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
