    Angry Scanning and repairing drive on boot

    Hello,

    I installed Windows 10 the end of June on an older PC to see what programs worked/didn't work. Today, when I tried to boot the PC, I am getting the following message: "Scanning and repairing drive (G): 4% complete." It has been stuck on that for most of the day. Windows is installed on drive "C," not drive "G." I am at a loss as to what is going on. Does anybody have any feedback regarding this problem and how to fix it? Thanks.

    Nancy

    Do you have any other drives (internal or external)?

    Yes, Joe. I have a Western Digital VelociRaptor which house my "C" drive. If I remember correctly, it is not partitioned. There are two other WD sata drives. One is partioned which includes the drive in question. I honestly don't remember exactly how I have the two sata's partioned. Since I am unable to even connect to windows to see the size and partitions of the drive, I really can't provide that information at this time. It's still running and still at 4%:-(

    Disconnect the drive with G on it and see if it will boot.

    Joe, I forgot to mention last night I had an external drive attached to do a backup, but I did not have the icon to safely remove the external drive once I was finished. So after I was done working on that computer, I shut down the computer and then disconnected the external drive. Since I have the backup for this PC on that drive as well, I did not want to run the chance of just unplugging it!

    At this point, I don't know which one of the two drives that is.

    Then disconnect each in turn.

    Thank you, Calimanco. I actually let it run over night and it was ready to log in when I got up. However, that particular partition is hosed, so I will need to format it and restore from backup. Thanks again for your suggestion.
