Compact After Update.... "May Wish to Re-Import.."

Compact After Update.... "May Wish to Re-Import.."

I just compacted after updating and had 15% compaction - normally under 1%. The update may have added some extra stuff into our databases when updating.

When I clicked ok from that screen, I got a quick message "May wish to re-import your file...", it disappeared (or I clicked ok), then a spinning wheel to show the software was trying to re-do the index. I waited until 10 minutes had gone by and chose to File > Exit.

Waited a couple of minutes and rebooted the program. It took awhile longer than normal to reboot, but finally did to Plan Workspace. Went to People Workspace and it re-indexed normally.

Back to normal (I hope.)

Strange. Thanks for the heads up. This did happen for me with the previous update. However, sinc e the latest (.723) I've compacted twice and everything seems to proceed normally with about the same amount of compaction (<0.5%) and a normal time to re-index.

I've compacted several times since the latest update and have not noticed any issues.
