    I imagine this will take a while (I selected both hard drives) so I will come back again tomorrow unless it miraculously finishes in the next hour or so.

    I really appreciate the help!

    No problem. Tomorrow is fine.

    Update: Upon waking up I was surprised to find it on the same drive still - 27,517 objects scanned... seems slow?

    Hmmm...did it go to sleep while you were sleeping? If we can't get this scan finished in a reasonable amount of time, I will suggest a different Rescue Disk, which scans outside the W10 OS. I see it's been 4 hours since you posted - any results?

    Hahah

    I just called my wife on lunch and she said it's still on the same drive, something like 36000 objects scanned.

    Would the chkdsk detect this kind of speed issue - if it is one?
    This is basically what I saw when trying to use the advanced reatoration features - everything was taking forever.

    Hmm...Maybe we might try a different approach when you get home....

    We can boot to the Kaspersky Rescue Media and run that scan.

    Next, we could run SeaTools on the drive to see if it is "failing". CHKDSK does not address all SMART attributes of a drive. Some values could be failing soon, but not yet. We are talking a spinner here, and not SSD, right?

    Ya, it's not an SSD.

    Do you boot off of Kaspersky in the same way? It didn't see an OS

    Edit; trying again with the installation instructions

    Yes, you boot the computer to it, just like you did the rescue media.

    I'm still fighting with this one. I installed it to the USB like the directions say, but I'm getting a boot error.
