macOS Mojave

Time machine seems to get stuck

I have a new hard drive that I am using as a Time Machine backup location. It started to backup last night, but seems to have stalled after backing up only 41 GB out of the 3 TB that a full backup requires.

The hard drive is 10 TB and is formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled). It is not showing any errors, it is just not making any progress. It shows "Calculating time remaining…" without giving the estimated time, probably because it is hung up.

Is there something else I need to do?
