Windows 7: Chkdsk stuck?

Chkdsk stuck?

I'm running chkdsk /r /f and it has been on stage 4 verifying files on file 22543 for over 3 hours now, has chkdsk crashed or is it possible for it to take this long on a single file?

Running toshiba satellite l750D-14R, no difference in hardware to how it comes straight from the box, OS is windows 7 64 bit.

Dont worry that thing will run hold day trust me i have experience with it, it all depends on how large your hard drive is and if you checked both options. My pc has a 1tb hard drive and chdsk takes hold day so your best best is to do something else and go to sleep because it wont finish for now.

Sounds like it's hung to me but it would be best to let it run overnight and see what happens.

First a triviality, which is not responsible for your problem:
the /R includes /F, thus:
is the command you should use in the future.

Now you failed to tell us the size of the "disk".

I'm going to go against the grain:
1. Abort the chkdsk.

2. Post following:

Run disk management:
This method gives you a display without the unneeded navigation pane.
WIN=key with Microsoft logo on top.

Maximize the output of Disk Management:
Maximize the output of Disk Management:
ALT-Spacebar key combo | X key (selects Maximize) |
Drag the field separators (such as between Status and Capacity) to show entire field.

Make a snapshot:
Drag the cursor around the area you want to snip.
File | Save as | select save location and name | Save

Post the snapshot:
Post a File or Screenshot in Seven Forums


here comes #3.:

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Ř Manufacturer and Model OR Custom build.
Ř ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

With Speccy, you can select with your mouse/touchpad info from the display
and paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

I was going to give a #4 , but i'll wait for your carrying out of 1,2, and 3

Also: Why did you decide to run ChKDsk? That might help us.

Patience is all you need.

Hi there!
I don't think you should worry about it. As long as that little blue/green/red light is on indicating that your computer is still running, you should leave it. In my experience, I need 2 days for my chkdsk to finished, and it's only 600GB drive.
Anyway, don't be frustated by it, CHKDSk is trying to save you from worst!
Just be patience
