Stalled doing a full restore RRS feed

  • Question

  • My main computer running Vista SP1 (32 bit) failed yesterday.  Finally got a chance to try out the restore feature.  

    Reformatted the drive, downloaded the current iso and create a restore cd.

    Everything started out beautifully and the progress bar moved along at a good pace.

    At about 50%, it stopped moving, and since then the estimate (originally 42 minutes) has been going up and up (current 3 hours 33 minutes)

    Screen is active, I can move the windows around so I know it's still 'live'.  I am able to log into my home server from another machine.

    Do I need more patience? Is this a known issue? Any corrective steps I should be taking?

  • I'm now guessing patience...the number has finally started going down again, 2 hours 55 minutes
