I'm trying to resize my Mac partition from 380 GB to 350 GB. Disk utility didn't allow me to do that, claiming my current container size is also the minimum container size, despite having 130 GB of unused storage, so I used Terminal and these two methods:

First

  | cut -d. -f4 \
  | xargs -n1 tmutil deletelocalsnapshots

from Can't resize APFS Container: Not enough free space in Container due to APFS limits or tidemarks

and then Resize APFS partition in Mojave

Initially that seemed to work, but it got stuck at some point, showing this:

I left it overnight (twice), since it might take some time, but after about 40 hours I'm starting to feel a bit nervous.

What should I do? Thanks in advance
