FTM 2009 Compact file issue

I have been a faithful FTM user for many many years. I have not however in all those years made a habit of regularly compacting my file. My tree has 2687 individuals and many related sources, photos etc. Much of the photos and documents are linked to their location on my hard drive and not in the file itself. I began a compact on Monday evening around 8 pm. The file is still being analyzed about 33 hours later. The dialog window says that it has analyzed in excess of 3 billion records of 56,460. The est total time reads 00:00:01. This seems very odd to me and I am concerned about cancelling the process for fear of screwing up my file. I do have a backup of this file but I would assume that it will have the same problem. I've sent a question to support but have gotten no response. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
