How long should Windows Easy Transfer take?

I've just done a clean install of Windows 7 on my Vista desktop, having previously transferred files and settings, etc, to an external hard drive using Windows Easy Transfer. This transfer process did not take very long.

When I came to transfer some of the settings back to Windows 7 the progress indicator barely moved and the message said that it would take over eleven days!

I can't believe this is correct. Can anyone explain this please?

Take a look here and check through to see where it appears to have gone wrong - I have never seen a message that says it would take 11 days to do a transfer. enter link description here
