Hi im doing a quick scanning on a 500GB Harddisk which i accidentally deleted quite a few folders many months back.
It took forever and almost 24 hours and still scanning.
Please advise if it is possible to save current scanning rather than just cancel ?
Another issue is my current MBP Harddisk is running out of space and what if they prompt me not enough memory or space what should i do ? will i be able to save the current scanning process ???
Hopefully i can get some help here fast.

Hi there, seems like something’s wrong with the hard drive. It’s true that Quick Scan doesn’t save its progress if it didn’t complete scanning, it’s also true that it shouldn’t take so long, so something is definitely not right. Try to cancel Quick Scan and run a Deep Scan on this drive.August 28, 2012 at 2:27 am #4998
Hi thanks for your reply. My MBP just prompt my not enough harddisk space. It asking me to resume or relaunch!!! Please advise if I can work on the current scanning process.

Is it asking you to resume the Deep Scan? Then surely proceed. Are you recovering to another disk?September 1, 2012 at 10:04 pm #5001
no it did not ask me to run any deep scan, this time round i deleted almost everything in my MBP with 450BG empty space to run the quick scan for my usb 500GB (usb2.0) till now it been almost 2 days and still not finish yet 🙁September 3, 2012 at 11:44 am #5003
As I said, try to cancel Quick Scan and run a Deep Scan on this drive.September 3, 2012 at 6:46 pm #5007
thanks for your reply, isnt by running deep scan, i cant get back the original folder structure with all the files sorted out together ?
it seems like this drill disk pro software slows down my mbp after 24 hours of quick scanning and eventually freeze my mbp 🙁September 5, 2012 at 8:30 am #5008

It’s true, but Quick Scan isn’t always effective, especially on HFS/HFS+ file systems.
