Please be patient when operating on very large files. Many factors can affect program speed: The complexity of your operation; The size of the files involved; Network speed; Available memory on your machine; Processor speed; Other tasks running on your machine.
Tips to speed up performance on large files include:
Disable ‘Display First Hit Line’ in Options-Output. If you need a listing of search results, using an output file.
When using scripts, several smaller scripts with fewer steps per script may be faster than one very large script.
If network speed is an issue, copy the files to a local path to perform your operation.
