I just bought a new external 1.5TB drive but i had one lost connection mid transfer so far and the box it came in was questionable.
So, is it ok to hit cancel on this checkdisk running without causing a problem? It is taking over 9 hours and i need to get work done on the computer it is running on. :[
extra info so you don't lecture me:
-usb cable is snug
-did not drop it, shake it, spill liquid on it
-(online order from newegg) box had a big gash in it that looked like someone tried to open it but the contents were still tied up and wrapped.
-i don't want to deal with the warranty customer service until i am positive it is broken
-drive turns on and runs...? idk why i should need to say that but seriously i don't want any dumb lectures on unrelated things
-yes i should have probably downloaded a better utility but i didnt know it would take this long
-drive is NTFS
-not using the comp running it atm
