I used to think that too, until someone enlightened me. Apparently, if a physical file index becomes damaged, every logical file index is also rebuilt. For large physical files with several logical files, this would be very time consuming. Granted, we did a reorganization on a physical file with a total of 30+ million records (15 million deleted) and 21 logical files in the space of a few hours on our dual processor 640, so perhaps rebuilding all the access paths is not the issue it once was.
