It generally depends on how much crap you've got on your hard drive - Good, bad or otherwise... A deep scan - regardless of the app - takes a long time as it's a thorough scan of everything on the drive.

lol, Podgie...after all this time..I should know better! :P Anyway..it's done, though was about 3 hours. I'm wondering if it's always like this, or does it get faster next time. I also think a problem could be I only have 10 gigs of space left...may be time for me to move my dbase into bigger digs.
