    Did chkdsk ever complete?

    Hi. Somewhat similar problem, so I didn't want to start a new thread..In an effort to diagnose a sluggish freezing computer (windows 10) I mistakenly ran checkdsk c: f/ r/ x . It has been running for almost 3.5 full days now. Was at 0% for a while, bumped to 5%, then 11% for about 1.5 days and now at 12% for over 24 hours. And I have been reading that I need to let it keep running in order to avoid further damage. But it is a large drive, and at this rate it could take weeks to complete. I need some thoughts about whether I should keep waiting... or any other suggestions. Thank you. Joni

    When you run Check Disk (error checking) with the /R switch, it checks for Bad Sectors. If you don't have any Check Disk should only take a few hours. But it you have too many, then it could go on overnight or longer. The longer the scan the more bad sectors you have. If it has only been going for a few hours, I would let it run, and check it periodically and plan on getting a new HDD. If it has been going on for days, then just replace the HDD.

    Thank you very much for reconfirming it is time to initiate "Plan B". J
