chkdsk operation extended

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have entered the magic phrase
“ chkdsk c: /f /r /x” and my HP laptop 24 hours
ago and although the drive lights are still lit
when should I interact, and how ?

As you probably know, this is just the command to run CHKDSK and it should run in just a few minutes and display the results in the command window you opened.  There is no "interaction" with this command -- you just run it.

 

So, I don't understand the question.

Thank you Sir. My predicament was the extended length of the operation which stuck on ‘Level 4’.

Previous running a system check brought up a DST error so short of putting the laptop in the freezer until it repented (kidding) I simply was curious as to what the correct action should have been.

 

Anyway, I gave up and shut the **bleep** thing down.

 

Thanks for your interest.

A hanging CHKDSK is nearly always an indication of hardware failure --as most like, a seek is failing and then being repeated endlessly.  Good thing you did not put the laptop in a freezer as that would not have helped the situation.  The drive basically needs to be replaced.

Have ordered a replacement from HP. Not sure about due date!

 Meanwhile, will my Retrospect backup be sufficient?

 Will there be any gaps in data ?
