The process of converting ShapeArray (SAA) data is quite calculation intensive, and for very large data sets, this may require a considerable length of time to complete. It is possible to shorten the time that SAACR_raw2data is required to run by using an Archive subfolder within your data folders. Instructions for doing this can be found here in SAACR_raw2data 'Archive Subfolder' section and in the 'Creating an Archive To Improve Conversion Speed For Large Data Sets' guide.
