    A quick THANKS for this thread and the great information enclosed.

    Over the weekend my desktop blue-screened, then last night rebooted with a "repair" that almost destroyed the OS (Win10 1607). Start menu stopped operating (except right-click), File Explorer would bring only one window up at a time, multiple programs said they were corrupted, the desktop disappeared every ten minutes or so and forced a reboot, RUN did not work properly, PowerShell did not work properly, chkdsk was unable to run, a real mess. Also, SpinRite in level 2 did nothing, which is rare.

    The thread Solved Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation - Page 4 - Windows 10 Forums was excellent in giving me some hope after sfc did not work. The instructions in the thread where this message is posted were excellent in guiding me to a set of solutions that solved the issue with about 6 hours of work. This is my main workstation for general work as well as digital video production and podcast production, so this was important to get running again.

    Thank you all for participating, contributing questions and answers. You convinced me to join the forum, although I hope I don't have additional problems to report.

    Thx, I'll check that out. As for contributing help, I seem to be able to mess more up than I fix, but I'll contribute when possible. ;-)

    Then best get a system image program like Macrium Reflect(paid or free, which is good enough actually):
    Macrium Reflect Free

    And this thread in the forums is where you can see when there is an update, and if you should update the recovery drive:
    Solved New Macrium Reflect Update - Windows 10 Forums

    And here is an excellent tutorial on how to set it up and use:
