     Important

    Interrupting chkdsk is not recommended. However, canceling or interrupting chkdsk should not leave the volume any more corrupt than it was before chkdsk was run. Running chkdsk again checks and should repair any remaining corruption on the volume.

  • Hi,

     

    When chkdsk is Stuck or Frozen, if you've waited hours or overnight, you need to take action as below:

    Restart your computer.

     

    Press Esc or Enter to stop chkdsk from running.

     

    Run the Disk Cleanup utility to clear out junk files.

    Open an elevated CMD, type sfc /scannow, followed by Enter to run the System File Checker.

    Restart and exit chkdsk again during the startup by pressing Esc or Enter.

    Open CMD as admin, type Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, followed by Enter to repair the Windows image.

    Run chkdsk again.

     

    The scan should be able to run to completion this time.

     

    Hope above information can help you.
