    Chkdsk stuck


    Hello chkdsk is stuck at 10% now for hours, I am running Windows 10 Pro 64 I have 12GB of RAM and a Intel i7, on a 500GB hybrid drive. I just got the laptop a month ago. I decided to run chkdsk on a whim even though I'm not having any problems and don't suspect any errors, I'm running it in f/r/x mode. I probably have about 450GB of free space. I ran disk cleanup right before I did chkdsk. Can anyone tell me what I can do. Will stopping it mess up my brand new HDD? How long do you think this will take, I've read online that it has taken days for some people.

    I've found the same running chkdsk, I've read that it could take days to complete with large (I have a 2Tb drive) hard drives. For a 500Mb drive it could take over 12 hours.

    I've had it take more than 24 hours on a 1TB drive.

    It's the /R option that can take the most time. This asks chkdsk to reassess the bad blocks, meaning it has to test every block on the drive, whether its used or not. It's gets even slower if particular blocks need several retries to determine if they are useable.

    Okay, because this is my school laptop, it's ironic because I'm actually going to school for networking and Computer Security, I should have done some research before doing this chkdsk, hopefully it gets done by the time I get off work tonight around midnight. So I can do some school work.
