Exchange 2003 Migration from Exchange 5.5 Move Mailbox Problem

Hello all

I am having issues moving some mailboxes from my Exchange 5.5 Server. The
majority of mailboxes have been migrated however some have not. When I choose
move mailbox on the rogue mailboxes the count moves to greater than 100% and
just keeps going. I have to cancel in the end and I receive no errors apart
from the fact that I have cancelled the migrate.

It seems to start with the message Moving Mailbox. Root (8128/9) as an
example. The ones that have completed do not have Root they just say moving
Inbox / Sent Items etc and complete normally.

Hope you can help

Regards
