Get files from remote site hangs in Dreamweaver and doesn't finish.

I clicked the Synchronize Sitewide link in DW CS4 and chose the get newer files and delete files not on the remote server but it doesn't seem to ever finish. It gets hung up and keeps showing the progress bar which says... Building file list > Waiting for server > Building file list > Waiting for server, etc., etc.
When I first started this process it downloaded filesfor around 20 minutes then started this looping thing. This has been going on for a about half an hour with no end in site.

Should I be waiting this long just to download a copy back to the local machine?

It has finished synchronizing.

It has finished synchronizing and it's all good.
