    2.36TB backup sounds like a fresh whole new backup.. that would mean it needs to delete the entire old backup.. something is wrong I suggest to even have a backup that large.. it will also take a month.

     

    Check Pondini for over large and backup not being able to be deleted.

    Try C4 and D4.. to start with.
