    My 1TB Western Digital external hard drive has been corrupted (prolly due to forced power off) and after running chkdsk /f /r for 3 hrs its still in “Inserting an index entry into index $0 of file 25.” looping mode… I’m crossing my fingers and will be leaving my laptop on through the night. I’m hoping that, after reading through and scouring over both forums and comments, I can see the light at the end of the looping tunnel when I wake up the next day. If waiting worked 10 years ago, I hope to update here again with good news in this year 2017…

  • Fingers crossed for you and your drive, William :)
