I have had some issues with my laptop (Dell Inspiron N5050, Wondows 7) and so decided to run chkdsk (with all the option boxes ticked). It kicked off yesterday afternoon at around 1pm local time. It went through phases 1-3 with no issues, but in phase 4 (file data) progressed slowly and found a number of bad clusters. At 5pm yeaterday it was at "10% complete (221253 of 225776 files processed)". Its now 6.30am (13.5 hours later) and it is still in the same state.
So should I interrupt it (power down?) now & start again?
Laptop is still under Dell Warranty .. amd I better to get them onto it at this stage?
