    Stuck Scanning and Repairing Drive.


    I have been patiently waiting for a period of 1 hour looking at the screen of my laptop. At this present moment, Windows is stuck 'Scanning and Repairing Drive D: 9% Complete'. Can anyone help me?
    Kind Regards,
    MSM

    Exactly what are you doing? Upgrading? Clean install? D drive?

    If you're scanning your hard drive (used chkdsk /r for example), that process will take in excess of 2 hours depending on size of your drive and errors found. it typically stops updating around 10 or 11% and suddenly jumps to 100 when done. Have patience.

    My apologies, I didn't read the header about scanning and repairing the drive. Simpk5 is correct, be patient. Were you having a lot of problems that you needed to scan and repair?

    The problems fixed, and I didn't use that command line. Just told my dad not to turn PC off overnight and I come downstairs, it's done.

    Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for posting this bit of info. This kind of knowledge should be much more widely disseminated. If I hadn't seen it I probably would've tried desperate (and potentially destructive) measures to stop the CHKDSK process I ran earlier today, which reached 10% very quickly but sat there for nearly 3 hours. To many laypeople that would signify failure, esp. on a brand-new PC like this one, despite the still-active spinner. Thanks again.
