Greetings,
I'm running chkdsk/r on my Laptop.
The size of the harddisk is over 500 GB.
I already used more than 400 GB.
The harddisk isn't showing any symptoms of failing, but my feeling tells me to do a chkdsk.
So I started up chkdsk/r,
now it It has been stuck at about 36 percent ( 316831 of 586736 files processed) during stage 4 of 5 since about 27 hours ago.

Is this normal thing, judging by the size of my hard drive and the amount of usage?

The sound of the harddrive is still audible, though. And it's not producing any weird sound that signify a failing harddrive.

Nope should not take that long unless a serious problem has been detected.
I suggest stopping it doing the following as this will tell you if there is a problem with a hard drive better then chkdsk.

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.

NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, try the Hitachi DFT CD Image version of the software

Thanks to Broni for the instructions

Ummmm, is it all right to force shut down the laptop if chkdsk/r is running, especially at stage 4 ?
I'm afraid that doing so might severely damage the system.

It is a risk but it is a needed risk at this point. Normally it will cause the system to have to run the chkdsk again but we can cross that bridge if it arises.

I forgot to add: I ran chkdsk on boot, not after log on.

Not a problem at this point there seems to be a issue with the HD but until the diagnostic I suggested is run I cannot say for sure.
