Moving local copies

I am using the Cloud version and have all photos sync'd there.


I setup a 'local copy' in the config onto an external SSD, but this has run out of space, so I decided to move the local copy onto my NAS as I don't need to worry about the speed particularly, it is just to have the second copy.


Lightroom has successfully moved around 130,000 images, but seems to have become stuck with the remaining 2178.


Is there any way to identify which file it is trying to copy so I can do it manually or get rid of it ?  It m ay just be a video file which is large, but it has been sat like this for hours on end.


Using the latest version of Lightroom on a Mac.
