MY 120giger does a FULL format in about an hour.

So 8% complete after 2 hours looks like something is wrong.

When it does a full format its also checking for errors so it may have found some and is trying to correct them.

Maybe leave till morning to see if it completes?

You can start again and do the quick option if you want.
