Hi Gitte! Thank you so much - it finished about 10 hours later and going through the output it turned out there was a couple of corrupted data files (which I should have noticed) causing problems and it being a huge dataset of measurements that needed to be sifted through. We have now adjusted the parameters for the following analysis as well as removed problematic files. I expect the next round to run a lot smoother - and faster. It is a steep learning curve for me! I have no clue how the algorithm is set up, would be interesting to see how it is working behind the screen to be honest. I have been told there could be a limitation to database comparisons per minute as well, as to not overload servers. But in this case the culprit was likely to be the corrupted files. I have definitely learned a lesson! Amanda
