Question about speed of records deletion

I have a database up at FMPHost (FM 14). One table has 161,000 records. I would like to delete all the records in that table and re-upload a refreshed set of records in its place.

 

So far it's been about 10 minutes and only about 2,000 records have been deleted. The progress bar is moving quite slowly.

 

Is there something inherently slow about deleting lots of records in a hosted Filemaker database? Is there a lot of work, for example, being done on my client-side involving a lot of data transfer?

 

Thanks,
