Ok, so it's been running since I posted this message, no crash, non stop, 24/7.
It's been indexing for for over two weeks now.

The question remains the same. How long will this indexing take and how much
drive space will this take using the following;

The bandwidth is a full T1, point to point, the indexing has full use of the T1.

The machine is a dual 350Mhz with 8GB's of memory.

I'm running 'index -N 25'.

I'm running aspseek pretty much out of the box, configured almost as it comes,
with few changes. This was a trial run but I didn't realise it would take this

Finally, I am indexing 10028 different sites, not URL's, again, with the basic

The process so far, has used up 45GB's of drive space.

And again, I know that no one knows for sure but there must be some users out
there who have/are run/running a similar indexing process. I'm not looking for
anything exact, just *some* idea on how much longer this will take and how much
more drive space it will use up.

Thanks for ANY help you can offer me on this :).
