Massive File Sizes Generated ??

I am running a static analysis on a small assembly using SW Premium and I've noticed it's generated nearly 70 study-related files totaling over 22 GB (yes, gigabytes, not megabytes).  Is this normal?  There are several different types of files: .CWR, .LDS, .IDA, .PCO, .LCD.....the list goes on.


On the same analysis, it's beeing running for almost a day now and has been stuck at 20% "Solving contact constraints" for at least 10 hours.  All of the files were generated within the first 3 or 4 hours of the study, and since then it appears no new files have been created.  This is what the status window looks like (see below). 


Any suggestions?  Is this behavior normal?  Think it's frozen?
