We are running VMware ESXi v4 on a physical server utilitizing iSCSI storage. I realized last night that one of our virtual hosts had some snapshots from a few months ago. Not wanting them to get out of control I decided to delete all snapshots beginning at 9:16 PM last evening. The virtual host was powered down to do this to speed up the process however I was shocked to find this task still running this morning when I arrived at the office. It has been running for over 12 hours now and seems to be stuck at 99%. Can anyone help me to determine if it is still running or if it's locked up please?

Here is the current state of the disk files for this host:
Disk1: disk size=100GB, snapshot delta=608.20MB
Disk2: disk size=40GB, no snapshot
Disk3: disk size=100GB, snapshot delta=6.52GB
Disk4: disk size=80GB, snapshot delta=16MB
Disk5: disk size=500GB, snapshot delta=130.91GB
Disk6: disk size=500GB, no snapshot

Your help is greatly appreciated.
