I have build a digital library from a CDS/ISIS database containing 43697
records - just plain records with no attachments, some of them might be
a little bigger than bibliographical records without an abstract. The
size of the Master file is 36215 KB. First I wanted to use the explode
database option, but it just hung and after a long while the message was
that it falied. I then built the library the normal way, but it took
nearly 8 hours to finish the build process. I am doing this on Windows.
Is this normal to take such a long time?
