Furthermore, how long does chkdsk FR take?
The chkdsk process is usually completed in 5hours for 1TB drives, and if you're scanning a 3TB drive, therequired time triples. As we already mentioned, chkdsk scancan take a while depending on the size of the selectedpartition. Sometimes this process can take a few hours, sobe patient.
Additionally, what are the 5 stages of chkdsk? When the F switch is set, chkdsk's activity isdivided into three major passes: checking files, checking indexes,and checking security descriptors. If you use the R switch(chkdsk /r), chkdsk makes two more passes to look forbad sectors.
