Import PST to User mailbox archive

As part of the Move to Exchange 2013 we are also using the built in archive (we are so done with enterprise vault).  Anyway, I have a few archive import requests that I cant seem to remove.  I usually run this to remove the complete archive import reqs

Get-MailboxImportRequest -Status Completed | Remove-MailboxImportRequest

  and that usually does it but I have 5 reqs that just will not let me remove even though they show %100 completed and I verified wit the end user that all his archive data is in fact there.

how do  I clear these???

Get-mailboximportrequest    to get the name of the request.

Remove-MailboxImportRequest -identity user\MailboxImportname

thank worked for me.
