It can take a significant amount of time, yes. Once the shrink has completed, I 
recommend you shut down Freenet, copy the important files (freenet.ini, the 
datastore directory, and anything with a number in it, except for the temp dir) 
to somewhere safe, and uninstall. Then install a new node on C, shutdown the 
node, delete the datastore dir and files with a number in their names, and copy 
the old data over it.

This is why you can't just move the directory: You need the new node to still 
be auto-started.
