Default [Q] Restoring Issue

So I created a backup with TWRP and now am trying to restore from said back up. It's been running for nearly an hour and its still on restoring data. Just wondering if this is normal. The progress bar is still spinning, but hasn't made any progress really since it started on the data partition. Just wondering what I should do in this kind of case.

Edit: Coming up on two hours, I'm scared to let my phone die. Really not sure what to do with it tho at this point.

If you still want to continue the restore, you can always plug it in the charger..... It'll charge while in recovery. One of the perks when using TWRP.

I wouldn't recommend letting it die... Just in case, you don't want to end up with a bigger problem.
I would power off the device before letting it die and reboot to recovery and try restoring the backup again.
If it still doesn't restore your backup, you could try re-flashing TWRP again and then try restoring the backup.
Also did you make your backup with an older version of TWRP and then updated to a newer version? If so reflash the version of TWRP you used to make the backup with and then restore your backup.
