Scandisk /r stuck in Safe Mode?
Posted on 2007-08-10
Few days ago, I attempted a scandisk /r from the dos screen in thorough mode.
I received a message saying that scandisk couldn't run right now but it would run next time I reboot the system.
Well, it did run but when it did, it said that scandisk couldn't complete because my volume was in use or locked.
So I thought I would get rid of this annoying message by booting in safe mode allowing scandisk to run and complete but now I'm a little freaked because something is happening on the HDD but I have no idea what it is.
After booting up in safe mode, it was loading a whole bunch of drivers in ASCII text.
Now it's stuck and has been stuck for over half an hour at this line : -> multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\windows\system32\drivers\BTHidMgr.sys
I have no idea if it's scandisk running in the background or something else deleting my HDD. What should I do? Force the computer to shut down (hard reset) or let it run to completion (whatever it's doing)?
