How to reset build time estimates

I have a build where we recently reworked the build process, and now it takes (on average) half as long as it did before.  However, TeamCity appears to not update its estimates on time remaining - since all its time estimates for that build are way over.  It has been nearly 2 months, and there have been over 20 additional builds (looking at the statistics, there are more "short" builds than "long" builds) - but it's still estimating the time based off of the long builds.

Is there a way to reset the time estimates and have TeamCity recalculate them?

What version of TeamCity do you use? Could you please attach screensh ot of the history showing short and long builds?

Not Nathan, but we have a similar issue:

We are currently running 7.0 (build 21241),
attached you will find screenshots of our history up to the point thatthe UI is providing. Before that we had a long time of builds running at maybe around 8-10 mins. Then some internal fubar was introduced that made the build times go up a lot (20 mins, 40 mins, up to 60 mins) until we found the root cause and the build came back down again and seem to stabilize at 8 mins right now. The prediction does seem to come down (it seems to be at around 30mins right now), but it seems to be happening pretty slow...

I am also looking for an answer to this - we are using TC v8.0.3. Was there any resolution to the original question by Nathan?

Thanks!

Build estimator considers up to 25 latest build of the build configuration on the particular agent (yes, it depends not only on configuration, but on build agent too). There's no way to reset the estimate. You have to wait.
