Exchange 2013 eDiscovery export to pst is hanging

I have a new exchange server install.  It's about three weeks old.  I'm trying to use the eDiscovery PST export tool and it's hanging on the export.  

I have .net 4.5, I'm using the right version of explorer (v11) and I can browse to the location where I want the PST to land, but when the screen pops up showing my progress, it just sits there with calculating showing up and Searching mailboxes and preparing the item list to export.

Anyone have any ideas about how to clear this and get a successful export?

If task is showing in progress that means server is still working. You need to give time server to completed. It depends upon data server need to search.

I think I found the culprit.  I was in Compliance Mgt and Org Mgt, but not in Discovery mgt.  Also, there IS a CSV file on my desktop so something is happening.  I don't think I'm waiting long enough.  I'm giving it another go after adding myself to the appropriate groups.
