Windows 7 system restore taking a long time

I was having boot errors, so I started a system restore. However, its been on 'restoring files' for nearly an hour now. According to others, it shouldn't take more than maybe 30 minutes. I'm restoring from an ssd at that. It's not frozen. The bar has animation, and I can move the window around, and even click on the other system recovery options. Should I wait longer? Or do I restart my PC (its custom built BTW)?
