    Scanning and repairing drive

    Hello everyone,
    Im using windows 8.1 which came out with my laptop.
    Problem is that, that "scanning and repairing drive ( c : )" stuck at 10% completed...
    Today I installed latest TuneUp utilities program, and it recomended me to use ' disk doctor' , after that, Ive restarted laptop as it asked, and now all i see is HP logo and that line, where it says ' S. and R. drive C : 10% completed ..
    It been like that for a hour or so...
    I had did disk scan n repair month ago as well, but then everything worked without any problems. Then (month ago) and now, while this scan and repair is working, I hear some kind of sounds coming out from my laptop. Like clunking,very quiet beepinv or clicking something like that( never heard these sounds, while i boot and use my laptop normaly).
    Ive red in this forum about same situation, but didnt got correct answer.

    Is there anyway to cancel this scan? I tried holding power button and restarting like that- on boot it goes on s and r. again, and stucks at 10% ..
    If no, how long it will take to scan and fix c disk, if it has 1TB in in?

    Thanks for reading, i hope somebody will answer :c

    wizthis, I assume you're running chdsk? I have a one TB drive as well and it took several hours to complete. For me it was stuck at 27%. How long it actually took, I don't know as I walked away and left it alone; it was several hours at least. I found no way to stop it so I just let it run.

    OK, now that you've been through that mess, do what we've been Shouting from the Rooftops for years......

    Backup! Backup! Backup!

    Never touch your OS, until you have a complete backup of your C: drive, safely tucked away someplace on a separate drive or removable media, like a DVD.

    FREE backup programs abound and are talked about all the time on these internet forums.
    I use an old DOS ver. of Ghost, from a DOS boot disk, CD or Flash Drive, other guys prefer Acronis True Image, and the list goes on and on. But to work right, the Backup/Restore program must NOT be on your hard drive.

    I also prefer to do a backup followed immediately by a Restore, to verify that the Backup Image File is viable.
    Ghost restores files one at a time, in sequential order, just like they were copied, so the restored version is 100% free of any fragmentation. I call that "The Worlds Best Defrag".

    Good Luck!
