    It is working, you just have to be patient. Sometimes chkdsk seems to stall and hang at one spot for hours.

    That's optimism for you! There's no fixed time for chkdsk, it depends entirely on what type or errors it finds.

    chkdsk might take a long time (for example, over several days) to complete
