Remove Drive "stuck" at 93.9%



This afternoon I decided to remove a small (500GB) drive from my main storage pool so I could use it for something else.  I selected the options to force close files and to duplicate later, but not to force remove because afaik there wasn't anything wrong with the drive (Scanner says it's fine; "oldest scanned block" was on May 4th) .  Everything seemed fine, but I walked away for a few minutes and when I came back the Server Essentials Dashboard had mysteriously closed.  I re-opened the dashboard, and when I clicked over to the DRIVEPOOL tab, it showed the "Removing drive... (93.9%)".  It's been at 93.9% for at least the past three hours - something is clearly wrong.  What should I do now?  I had something similar happen last time I removed a drive to replace it with a larger one - that time I tried to just reboot the server, and that created a big mess so I would prefer not to go down that road again.  What can I do?  Any tips?  When  I hover over the drive, it currently shows all free space except for 2.79GB "other", so I think it's basically done removing the drive but it's somehow stuck. 

I'm running version on Win12r2 Essentials.

TIA for any help you can provide.
