Whats up guys, since I wasn't able to copy files off of my external drive anymore, I decided to run chkdsk which hopefully will fix the problem. It has been running since 11 hours now and is still at stage 1 and 0 % which is frustrating especially, after a quick calculation, that it will be running for another NINE days to complete stage 1. I know that this means the external drive has ALOT of issues, but I can stop the process without making it worse than it it? I was able to copy some of the files over using freefilesync, but some files are not able to be copied. Would it make sense to copy as much as possible, delete those already copied files, so that the files that I can not copy would remain and then run chkdsk? Would that be faster, since it has less data on it?
