Corrupt Hard Drive. CHKNTFS /X G: Gives ERROR: the specified i/o operation on hs was not completed before the time-out period expired RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Community,

    My G: Drive has one or multiple corrupt (dirty) files on it. Normally you can trouble shoot the problem, but this isn't working.

    Going more indepth to solve the problem I tried the following command: CHKNTFS /X G: in CMD (Command Prompt).

    This initally seemes to work but after some time it gives the following error: "the specified i/o operation on hs was not completed before the time-out period expired"

    Then you have 3 options, to cancel, try again or continue. Either way it's not solving the problem, which is to make my G: drive workable again.

    Who can help me with this? I've added some screenshots the steps and errors i'm encountering.

    Thanks in advance,

    Martin

  • Hi Martin.

    Open an administrative command prompt and execute the following command

    chkdsk /f /r

    You may be asked to restart the system, because the process would need full control of the disk to perform the necessary checks.

    Bye.
