    You might wish to try an in-place upgrade repair install after running chckdsk to verify your disk.

    I'm assuming you don't have any useful restore points or disk images (highly recommended technique to create compressed copies of your system which acts as a backup and a means of restoring your PC to exactly as was and more).

    Here are my notes:
    Precede it with this in case sthg has happened to your file system:

    From an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed.
    Post back the result, which will be on the screen briefly.
    Otherwise you can get the result as follows:

    An In-place upgrade repair install will fix many things, but not those where the settings are not changed by the procedure.

    For this you need an installation medium with the same base build as you have installed.

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    This will refresh Windows, after the manner of a Windows installation.
    - all/most associations will be unchanged
    - all your programs will be left installed
    - you will lose any custom fonts
    - you will lose any customised system icons
    - you may need to re-establish your Wi-Fi connection
    - you will need to redo Windows updates subsequent to the build you have used for the repair install
    - Windows.old will be created
    - system restore will be turned off- you should turn it on again and I recommend you manually schedule a daily restore point.
    - you will need to redo any language downloads including the display language if you changed that)
    - inactive title bar colouring (if used) will be reset to default
    - if Qttabbar is installed, you need to re-enable it in explorer (Options, check Qttabbar)
    This is one of the better features of Win10: as each major build comes out, that's your updated reference build, and as updates are mostly cumulative, there will be few to do.

    Before you perform this major repair procedure, do create a disk image.

    Please consider using disk imaging regularly. It's a brilliant way to
    - preserve your system (and your sanity)
    - back up your data
    - restore your system to a previously working state in a relatively short time

    Recommended: Macrium Reflect (free/commercial) + boot disk/device + large enough external storage medium.

    It depends what you're trying to achieve.

    Disk imaging backs up entire partitions/disks. Thus it is a complete restorable image and also a backup, which can be updated (differentially or incrementally - see individual program for details).
    3rd party programs such as Macrium Reflect are much more flexible and more reliable than Windows System Image.
    Aomei Backupper has certain problems in certain situations. (Free/commercial). Acronis TI (commercial) was king some years ago but is now rather bloated. There are others.

    As to settings, depends on (e.g.)
    - no. of backups you wish to keep
    - frequency of backup required (e.g. how often do you change your PC's configuration or installed programs if considering imaging Windows)
    - where your data is located - keep your personal data away from the Windows partition/disk as far as possible.
    - amount of backup space availaible.

    Macrium Reflect offers a lot of control on scheduling and no. of backups to retain.

    If however you need to regularly back up fast changing critical files then you need to consider other solutions.

    - also to where.. whether it be via a network, or to the cloud (upload speed may be an issue).

    Consider your physical security- your backup should be physically remote (think thieves, fire, flood....).
