Hyper-V Export stuck at export 100%

Reese Jenner 1 Reputation point

I am exporting a 930 GB image to an external HDD (USB 3).

Hyper-V says it's at 100%, for over 2 hours. I see little disk activity and I can't copy the disk because it's in use by Hyper-V.

Do I just leave it and assume it's still doing something?

    Please check the event log in Event viewer>Microsoft>Windows>Hyper V VMMS and Hype V Worker, check if there's any error message about the VM export.

    If yes, please provide the error message for us.

    Thanks for your time!
