I have a Windows 2008 storage server, with 30TB of disk. Windows has detected a hard disk problem, and wants to run chkdsk at reboot (it can't run it with the filesystem mounted).
However this system has a complex directory structure (huge number of files). The chkdsk has been running for 24 hours and is at 2% of stage 1. I can't keep the system down for weeks to complete this.
Any other options? Other tools or methods I could use?
