Well it has been more than 24 hours and Conquest is still going through all the Dicom files in the data directory and re-generating the image database! The MySQL server is showing that there are over 3 Million rows in the images table so far! (See screenshot)
I must say I never thought that it would take this long to search through all the images. (1.8 TB worth). I just hope and pray that our other archive which has 2.8TB of storage never goes through the same process!
