Normally...chkdsk /r handles cross-linked files and other routine file problems...with great ease. In some cases, the check may take an extended period of time to complete, but it normally corrects such errors/problems and moves on.
I've never known chkdsk /r to involve beeping...I leave my audio off unless I'm using it for videos or music functions. I hope that you are not referring to the beep that indicates a concluded operation/alert such as may happen when an AV program comes across an identified malware file.
IME, anytime the chkdsk /r operation generates an onscreen message...that's a sign that either the hard drive, the file system or the partition structure has real problems.MiniTool Power Data Recovery
appears to be a link worth keeping...I had never heard of such but there are a ton of data recovery programs that exist and I've only had occasion to use 2 or 3 of them, so my experience is miniscule.
Did you notice that the free version of this program...allows recovery of only a very small portion of the partition? This is pretty common, it's a variation of the "try-and-buy" technique which some software comes with. I bring this to your attention because that may be why the program halted...it may not be the reason such occurred.
Frankly...I've never found a program that could repair a damaged partition, but I have seen reports that Test Disk is a decent program for doing such. You may want to try that. My approach to such is to just delete the existing damaged partition, format/create a new partition...after I have assured myself that it was just the partition and not the drive with the problem.

I've never used it, I've only had to resort to data recovery a couple of times and I used different programs before settling on GetDataBack - Data Recovery Software - http://runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm
You should download/run the appropriate diagnostic utility for your hard drive.
