Snap shot delete stops at 95% on ESXi Server

I had taken a snapshot of a server pre Windows Updates and had not deleted this snapshot for four days, when I came to delete the snapshot I could see that the process had jumped to 95% and then stayed at this level for some considerable time.

This is by design, the snapshot is a differencing file and has to write the changes back to the VMDK file and so this takes some time to complete. Don't worry in this situation, just wait for the process to complete and this may take several hours!
