Why the repair process takes so long?

The repair process takes too long because it has to verify all the files. In most of the cases, the files are verified against a MD5 hash. Since FIFA 11 uses large game files, the process takes a while. The installer calculates the MD5 hash of the file and then it compares it to the one in the database, then it builds a list with files that need repairing. The process could take from a few minutes to maximum an hour or so.
