Star Trek The Next Generation episode where computer search took hours

In Star Trek TNG, the crew would often ask the computer to perform certain searches. Usually the computer would respond, "Working..." and after a few moments give the answer.

I vaguely remember an episode where the ship's computer took hours to search records. I think the senior staff were informed when the search was complete and then reconvened.

But it's only a vague memory. Did that really happen? I'm interested because it would be one example where modern technology (e.g. Google) is way ahead of Star Trek technology.
