Google drive destroyed - chunk deletion has stopped



I destroyed a Google drive a couple of days ago - the used storage on the drive started at about 16TB, it's dropped down to 6.5TB however it's been stuck there for the last 12 hours so it seems that it's stuck. Is there anything I can do? I can't delete the chunks manually obviously! Thanks/

Yes it was unmounted. I ended up using a python script to delete the files.

In case anyone else needs to do this and finds it useful, I took the script from here -> https://github.com/JackPo/gdrive_orphan_cleanup/tree/main

For my case (no other files in Google Drive apart from the chunks), I just needed to amend line 99 of the code to

if not item.get('shared', False):
