    Actually, it's abandoned :(

    It stopped (apparently shortly after I went to bed) with a dratted pop-up asking me to confirm something or other, still showing > 39000 days to go. I'll try again tonight. This time I'll wait for the pop-up and hit the "Ignore all" button before retiring.

      and....?

      (or is it still running? ;)

        In the end, I ran the decompress on one subtree at a time rather than the whole disk, (and simply erased about half of them that I no longer needed first), so I don't have an actual time that is comparible. Sorry

    Well, given that you posted this almost 3 hours after the time that I "predicted" it would finish, I should bloody-well hope so :D

    (If that confuses you, take a look at my localtime) ;)
