W2K8 SP1 Backup Recovery Wizard stuck at "Please wait"

First I have used W2K8 SP1 Backup to recover files deleted from the server. I start the Recovery Wizard and it seems to be stuck at "Please wait" (blue progress bar running as expected). The recovery source is a USB 2 HD and it has a large number of backups (around 300) available - around 1.8 Tb). I expect the wizard to take a bit of time building its selection list but it seems to be taking forever - have let it run for an hour now. Is it normal behavior for the wizard to take this long? I don't see the drive light flashing on the USB drive which makes me think the process is hung up. Is there any process I can check (using Windows Task Manager) to determine if it is actually running ot hung up?

Well after an hour and a half or so the wizard finally continued on. Guess it was slow trolling through all those backup and I was impatient.
