CHKDSK /r stuck at 10%

I recently had a drive semi-break on me. I ran SeaTools for Dos and used it to try and fix the bad sectors. This however lost me a bunch of files. I am trying to recover them before I format the drive and reinstall windows. So I run CHKDSK /r in the recovery console and it has been going for 27 hours now on a 1.5 TB drive still displaying 10%. It is not frozen because the line underneath the 10% is still blinking. Is it supposed to take this long?

Also, system has 4GB of ram and I am unable to start windows. I also am unable to repair windows with the install disk because in the "System recover options" window does not display any windows installations.

Thanks, Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, CHKDSK /f works and completes. CHKDSK /r has been running for about 30 hours now.
