Updating a very large collection

My music collection now takes up 45Gb of disk space, most of this is only at 128 or 192Mbps.
However asking Strawberry to update collection seems to be taking forever - after an hour it's only at 13%.
Clearly more will take longer, but do the developers think it should be taking that long? Is there anything I can do to speed up the process?

That does not sound normal. Although it's not the bitrate or the size of the collection that makes the most difference, it's the number of files.
For me with a collection of 24432 FLAC files (625GB), a scan is usually done in under 15 minutes on an SSD disk.
But with the song fingerprinting or ebur128 analysis options on it will take much longer.
Is your source a local disk? Is it an SSD disk? How many files do you have in total under the directory added in Collection, including all files not just audio files? What audio formats? Do you have the fingerprinting or ebur128 options on?
