IntelliJ on startup "compacting indices"

Today I  have started working offsite using a vpn connection to get access to the companies network.
Unfortunately I start my work with intellij not wanting to startup.
The splashscreen gets stuck with a loader appearing saying "compacting indices".
Google is not helping out a lot. I'm thinking moving back to eclipse.
Has anybody experienced this problem before?
Please see attachement.
