hi jdm_freek,

I know this is a bit old... I was interested how long did the chkdsk ended up taking you?

I ran chkdsk on a 3 TB external HDD  and it's been going now on its 4th day!!!

appreciate your reply!

4 days is a long time, but it all depends on the speed of your pc and how corrupt the files on the hd are, with a fairly fast system it will finish overnight (12 hours ) but if there is a problem with the hd it may never finish, in that case I just shut the system down, format the hd and reload windows or whatever os your using. :dunno: And hope for the best !

I'm going now on day 5...

stuck on 70% for 3 days...

I would just stop it but there is important data on it I try to recover. before I ran chkdsk windows couldn't read the hdd so this is my last change on recovering.

perhaps you got another suggestion?

You could always download or purchase a recovery tool to recover what you have on that hard drive.
