Filr 3 to 4 upgrade without reindex

I've tried to upgrade my Filr 3.4.4 to 4, but I had to stop because actually is necessary to reindex all. We have more than 1.500.00 files, so thata operations takes more than 3 days per search appliance! It's absolutely crazy.
Why in this version I have to reindex all? It wasn't needed in other upgrades, like 2 to 3

This is required due to updated index format as part of Lucene upgrade from 3.4 to 7.x

Understood. But let me say that reindexing should be faster. As written, I've tried but after 2 days I had to rollback to 3. And I have 3 search servers

Due to architecture changes, re-indexing is needed when moving from 3.x to 4.x.
