Fixdisk has been running for 3+ hours and I've accepted repairs to probably 3 dozen sectors. It now seems to have stuck. Has it? What do I do now?

Fixdisk can be very Very slow
Be patient and leave overnight if necessary

There is an option you can specify when starting it to reply y to all prompts.
