As you can see from the image above Ethereum is redownloading the entire blockchain despite it being present in ".ethereum/chaindata".

This has happened after using Geth for the first time and updating the main client, unsure if one of these if any could be the problem, any ideas?

Appears it had something to do with running Geth (go-ethereum) on the same machine, ended up deleting the "chaindata" folder and redownloading the blockchain.
