moving exchange 2003 db - seems to be frozen

we are moving our exchange 2003 db to a different partition (per these instructions: http://www.petri.co.il/move_exchange_stores_to_a_different_disk.htm)

the .edb and .stm are 161gb total.  the .edb has moved but the .stm hasnt moved to the new disk and it seems stuck at 100%.

any ideas?  i dont want to cancel prematurely.

How long has it been in 100% for ? cos remember, this is microsoft and things aren't always accurate. So depending on the db size and HDD links, its best to wait

the file size always shows the full amount when moving a file in windows explorer, it is still moving the edb file
once it starts the stm you will see the same thing where the entire file size is on the dest

been 100% for 10 minutes - task manager says 'not responding'.

looking at the disk where we are moving the .edb and .stm, the .edb has moved but we don't see the .stm

with exchange, wait as much as possible. as said earlier, moving DB never gives an accurate percentage. Dont do anything - for a 50 GB db, i'd say about 1 - 2 hrs max.
