HI All, I need your to understand and resolve this issue.
I have initiated the backup script for a database which was online. I took it to single user mode and am restoring it. Its been 130 mins now and is showing as recovery mode where as it should be in restoring mode.

the messages tab in the SSMS says Processed 5531167 pages for database 'Mydatabase Name', file 'Mydatabase Log file' on file 1.

What can be done in these cases. can you please reply at the earliest since it our production environment?

What exactly, step by step, did you do to that DB?

Recovery is the last phase of a restore, but I've never seen the state change before.

Is it possible you have a very, very, very large transaction in the log file that needs to be rolled forward/back?
