Deletion of Norton Backup

I am using norton 360 to back up a PC.

On the last occasion it backed up the C: drive  and then started D: but in a short time just exited with no error message.

I thought perhaps the Norton 360 Backup carried out previously may be causing a space shortage so decided to delete that folder.

After several hours deleting it came up with a message to the effect that the folder contents were too large to place into recycling folder and would be delete upon my selection.
I selected yes delete.
That was two days ago and the deletion is apparently still proceeding, or is it?

Should I stop the process and start again or is it really deleting what is a large set of files.

Is there any way I can find out.

I dont know the folder size could be 100 GBytes

Many thanks
John

It sounds like a long time to me, but i guess you may just want to let it run if you leave you PC on.

I presume it is still running and changing rescources in task manager?
