    Chkdsk seems to have stopped before complete


    I am running chkdsk P: /r on a new 8TB internal drive before putting it in service. I just noticed in the command prompt window, it seems to have stopped. The progress and ETA are not changing. I think it has been that way for at least 2 hours.

    I opened disk management, right clicked in the wide area below the blue bar for that drive, selected properties and got the popup shown below. Disk management takes 20 to 60 seconds to load while showing "connecting to virtual disk service".

    I'm not sure what to do. Could chkdsk still be running, but not updating the UI? If not, what are my choices to restart without destroying or damaging the disk?

    Thanks

    This is a brand new drive. Viewing the task manager performance tab, I do not see any reads or write to the drive.

    Being as this is a new drive, if it has bad blocks, should I return or exchange it? There is no data on it.

    It has been at least 5 hours with no activity. Is there a way to safely exit chkdsk and I could I restart it?

    I finally figured out it had paused. Not sure why. With the cursor in the command window, pressing the enter key resumed it.
