I recently reinstalled my Vista, and after installing numerous different apps and updates, I have done virus scans and a complete defrag. (Boot time defrag also)
Now I'm moving onto Error Checking. I tried this on my 150gb D drive. This, last time (a year ago?) would have been an hours process, but this time it took so long that I rebooted and started again. Went to work, came back, and it's still doing it, 9 hours later. The numbers are moving, sloooowly, and the progress bar is still at a mere 15%.
I have both boxes tixed, including the 'scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors'.
The point is, it never took anything like this long before.
Is this normal? Is it a bad sign?
Any help appreciated. Thanks.
