[Jeremy Garchow] "You can select the new drive and hit “choose”

You don’t have to wait for anything else."

Oliver was taking about an intermittent bug whereby you *can't* hit "choose". The relink UI yanks control from you and goes to a beach ball. It is apparently enumerating something in the background for several minutes. Then it finally finishes and you can select the folder and the rest of the relink process is normal. On very large datasets I've seen this phase take 10-15 min. This is on various local Thunderbolt 2 arrays, not just a NAS.

I used to see this frequently when relinking very large datasets, but not recently. Hypothetically it could be the difference between a brute-force sequential search for metadata in thousands of files vs an indexed Spotlight lookup.

Oliver is on a NAS and Spotlight indexes don't always work correctly there, but it's just speculation it's even using Spotlight. It could be something else. But it's a bug, not lack of a feature. It usually works OK but in some cases the relink performance falls off a cliff.
