I restored a 61 gig db yesterday which normally takes no longer than a few hours. I check back today 15 hours later and the database states that it's still in the restore mode. What would be the best approach to correct this?

I do not see any problem with deleting the database and restarting the restore from the beginning.

If I delete the database will it also delete the backup associated with it?

No it will not.

You can issue this command:

DROP DATABASE [AdventureWorks]
GO


If it does not drop it, you may have to kill the specific spid in the Acticity Monitor.
