I hope you haven't left me as I have more that I'd like your advice on.
As I said, I have given up on the Iomega external, except to see if someone can get my data off.
I ran the command line chkdsk c: today and it found lots of errors. It said to run chkdsk /scan next, so I did that. When I came back it had finished and closed out, so I ran chkdsk c: again. This time it only showed about 4 errors. So then I ran chkdsk /f /r /x and it asked if I wanted to run this at the next restart, I answered Y.
Thing is, that has been running now for well over an hour, probably closer to 2 hours and it's still on 11%. I'm sure it's not working but will give it awhile longer. I was wondering if you know why it isn't progressing.
If anyone out there knows why chkdsk isn't showing progress please advise.
