Last week on my laptop fair few files got corrupt. I cannot rename them, copy them or delete them. Files belong to visual studio so I cannot compile some of my projects, which I need to finish by tomorrow. I get I/O device error. I have had similar issue about a month ago and running check disk utility seemed to fix it. Last time it ran for 3-4 days and on day 4 it got stuck at step 2 of the CHKDSK half way through but once I restarted my PC it had fixed all issues.
Now I am having the same issue, however this time I have had my CHKDSK running for 2 days now and it just got stuck on file 350,064 of 386,050 and hasn't progressed any further for 2 days. I tried to restart like last time but it didn't fix my files. I wonder what is wrong and why it gets stuck. Are there any other good FREE check disk utilities I can use or other switches with chkdsk that I should be trying (if so, how do I do that)? Thanks
