    Check Disk Problem

    I tried several times to run the command chkdsk K: /R but it stalls at stage 4, file processing. It still shows zero files processed after several hours. This happens whether I run the command in Windows 7 or in Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks and regards, Roy

    Is K: a USB drive?

    Have you tried the cmd chkdsk k: which is a read-only mode ?

    I've just run a chkdsk f: /r on an 8GB stick which didn't take any real time at all.

    Similar behaviour w/ HDDs connected via SATA; chkdsk gets to stage four "checking file data 0%" and seems to hang for some minutes but if left alone completes successfully after some time (but much quicker than with USB drives).

    Don't ask me why. Homer Simpson: "I didn't do it, it was like that when I got here".
