I was backing up my files to an external HDD when this error message showed up "can't read from the source file or disk". Some random youtube video suggested me to run a error checking tool under drive properties. So I used the scanning and repair option. The progress bar moved to about 20% after 10 minutes and hasn't moved any further in the past 15 hours. Pressing 'cancel' doesnt seem to work either.
Whats is happening here?
How do I stop it?

Hi,

start Task Manager and find the process in the list and stop it. If that fails, power the computer down, if it gets stuck in a shutdown cycle after 5 minutes, unplug the USB device and then restart your computer. ;)
