4TB My Cloud Full Factory Restore elapsed time: 168 hours and counting

So because of various backup corruption issues on my WD My Cloud, I was going to do a full factory restore on my WD My Cloud and start from scratch.

I’ve read it takes a while. I’ve heard of 2 or 3 days. And some people have mentioned it taking 100+ hours. And that seems like forever for this task, but if thats how long it takes… I guess that is fine… But now, this is one full week. And counting.

And… what? I’m still not supposed to stop the process?

Has anyone had it take longer?
