Well if it's not in an overly vulnerable state, I don't necessarily need the reshape competed quickly. I think what I will do is let it run, but also grab an external usb dvdrom + burn a rescue cd + grab a faster 3.5" external drive just in case. The machine is headless and not exactly in a good spot to be worked on. Next time I'll know better! Thanks for the help and keep up the good work, devs deserved praise!
