Compact Catalog - 8GB Travan Ext. Tape

When compacting the catalog (approx. size: 20MB) I've noticed that it consistently takes some 20 to 25 minutes to finish.

The only other apps running during compaction are Explorer and Systray.

That seems like an exceptionally long time to perform the compaction, considering that various other apps which have compaction abiity can complete the same task on even larger files in just seconds.

Is this 20 to 25 minutes considered normal, and if not, what might be the cause?
