Hello,
I had a problem with my HDD and had been running scanning and repair for a week now where it stuck at 27% since the first day.
I'm using chkdsk r/ f/ c: to check my 1Tb of HDD.
It had been too long for me. What should I do next? Should I wait the process or what?
Thank you.
 
That is way way way to long. I have a 1tb drive on this one and it took less, no time at all, to run it.

Now if there are problems with the drive that would explain it being 'stuck'.

You may want to get out of it and then try a different program to check it.

I have had the same problem several times. The main reason the program stops scanning is a bad sector. You can attempt other programs specifically "Active Kill Disk", I would personally suggest replacing the hard drive.
