Check Disk Stops Scanning!

  subi 13:34 12 Aug 2007

O.S.Windows XP Pro. Start a Full Check Disk scan but it stops on Stage 2 of 5 ( Chkdsk is verifying indexes ). It stops at 5% every time, even in Safe Mode. Anyone any advice how to rectify this problem?

Where are you running CHKDSK from, from within windows or at boot up

Pamy: From within Windows and also on Boot Up - same result.
Marg7: I am going to try the Scan again and just leave it on to see if, because there is a lot to fix, it is taking a much longer time than ever before.

Started CHKDSK from Boot Up and let it run - stopped on Phase 2 at 5% but after approx 45 minutes it continued and went through the whole process.
Scanned again from within Windows, and although Phase 2 was slower it didn't take any more than 10 minutes to complete this sector - I expect on the first scan it was rectifying the problem.
Thanks to Pamy & Marg7 for your advice.
