Is there any safe way to get out of it if it is stuck? If so I probably will find a different way around it. Don't want to be breaking my laptop. Quite annoying really.
Thanks for any help.
Normally it takes about 15 minutes. But it depends on what has changed and how long in time you go back.
Is your harddisk light still burning or flickering so there's activity? See you some animation on your screen? look carefully!
Please wait till finished!
All restore operations take place in 1 transaction. So it succeeds or is automatically rollbacked on startup. It least that's the way it should work.
