Ok so it's taking forever so I want to cancel the restore but I can't. There is no option to so what do I do? Unplug the USB? Is that safe?

"Forever" is so relative without a context....

True, sorry... Well it's been like 1 hour and a half and it's only at about 30%?

So I'm wondering if I want to stop this what do I do?

Someone in IRC was having this issue. Could you possibly be connected at USB 1.1 speeds somehow?

I'm not sure what my problem is, but I don't think it's USB speed.

Mine took about 60 minutes and I loaded 20GB. I was freaking out afterwards because everything was there except no settings icon. I rebooted the device and it showed up...phew.
