Re-enabled failed logical volume in ACU - Rebooted... Check disk now running.. and running...

I have a HP DL380 G6 running server 2003 as a DC.

Two logical volumes  - C  - raid 1 and the other d raid  5. The second volume failed and I could not login to the domain only through safe mode. I inserted a new disk and re-enabled the logical volume within the RAID software (ACU). I could see the D drive now and could see some data. I then re-booted the server and it went into a grey screen running Chk Disk... Its now been running for an hour... Its currently on 'deleting index entry  ---- in index $I30, etc....


What are my hopes of recovering, what's it doing and how long will this take???!

Its really very difficult to give an ETA on chkdsk , from the http://blogs.technet.com/b/joscon/archive/2010/10/29/questions-you-shouldn-t-call-microsoft-for.aspx article  I am putting quote here  
Quite simply, we don’t know.  There are so many factors that go into answering this question: volume size, number of files on the volume, fragmentation or corruption on the volume, etc that this is truly an impossible question to answer for customers.  We get asked this a lot in my group and trust me, if we could give you an answer to this, we would.  Quite simply though, its just not possible.  I usually defer to “As long as it takes” as my answer to this questions.

Nothing could be said at this moment. However so far I have faced only 2% cases in which I have lost few data. Otherwise we were able to recover all the data . So its actually deleting the non-relevant data . Its fixing the corruption and time take is entirely dependent as mentioned in the quote.

So what I think at the moment lets the chkdsk run completely and I do hope you will not face data loss [just an instinct].
