    Thanks, I have been through that tutorial. No prompts are shown there, so I will take it that there will be none. Hopefully so, if no problems arise.

    any prompts during repair-install?

    Or after clicking the Install Now button can I leave it run by itself and come back later after it's finished?

    Is there a decent progress indicator?

    2004. Thanks.

    Thanks. I had checked at Verbatim's site, because I knew in the past they had a good disk check program. But all I see now is a "green" program and an encryption program.

    I've had this behavior since forever with Win10, 1903 to 2004. To reproduce:

    -- it does rightly go off after 1 minute of...
