I know from experience that this method of error checking, as well as using CHKDSK, can take a considerable amount of time. In the past three hours, the progress bar has moved only about 20 percent of the way (It is on Phase 4). How long should I give it before I should assume it has frozen? (The computer itself is ok--it's not frozen).
Also, the Cancel button is grayed out. However, the X in the upper-right corner is lit. Would it cause any problems to the drive should I try to X out of it?
