Well some say /r automatically implies /f. I tend to just do both chkdsk /f /r to be certain both commands apply. /r does a recovery of any data it finds can be recovered while /f simply fixes errors.

Why aren't you running chkdsk while booted into windows or safemode? Is there something wrong with your OS? I forgot to mention that /f is not available in recovery console so /r must imply /f then sorry lol.

I don't think it froze it usually takes a while to do a complete chkdsk, I thought the same impression when it looked like it was just hanging there. I would just run it through chkdsk under the properties of C or do chkdsk /f /r in command prompt.
