It's just teh first step, and now it indicates 1h31mn05 :OMG:
After, I know it can be faster suddenly

I have 3 segments unreadable according  the check for the moment (and it dares to tell above it can be false positives :thud: :thud: :thud: )

Did it tell you which sectors were unreadable?  It is normal for the time to go up as the scan continues.

I know, it takes a lot of patience. Apparently there's really something amiss with that disk, and at any dubious read attempt the software keeps trying to read that sector over and over for a number of times before declaring it faulty, which takes plenty of time.

The positive side is that once a sector is marked wrong it won't ever be used, so your new system will reside on the healthy part of the HD.
The less encouraging side is that we can never be sure that the problem won't expand in the future: once the disk hardware begins going nuts it will hardly stop.

How large is your HD? I still have a healthy unused 1TB. If only we could think of a way... after all Christmas is near enough, right? :winks:

Yes, it talks for the moment of 4 sectors: 192508-509-510-511.
It's now checking 192572 on 635648. That difference explains the estimation growing I guess.

My HD on computer is 750 GO, but only 715 GO when I bought, rest was used by the system and stuff installed with it.
The day where it stopped to work, it stayed free around 550Go.

I have to check a destocking in a shop with furnitures and electronics. They stop to the end of the next week. I don't know if I'll find something for a cheap price.

Those sector numbers are high enough so the drive may be usable if the sectors are marked unavailable as Chiron suggested. 

I do agree with him that this is not encouraging for its long term use.

You were about 30% done in an hour if I'm reading your post correctly.

You wrote just before I come to give news. Suddenly system has accelerate, then it's done!
I hadn't time to read what it said before to be back at teh screen to check computer.

Yes, it stayed to step 30% - total 10% during a long time. Then pouf! End!

Seems it has 4 sectors only corrupted.

I clicked on "previous" to be back at the restauration thing.
So I guess it will be without saving files because of corruption. It's pretty sure DS4 is partially inside those sectors. Maybe something else too, even if I found nothing else potentially corrupted for programs I installed.

I think something else is wrong besides DS if the machine won't boot.

Probably some essential system module was on one of the faulty sectors. I'm sure someone in the world knows exactly where each piece of software/data is physically stored on disk, but that's certainly not me... :sad:
