    Sfc /scannow..... found corrupt files but unable to fix some of them.


    Win 10 version 1709 build 16299.402.

    I did a system file check and it said ........ "found corrupt files but unable to fix some of them".

    I am not looking for a solution, such as dism ..... restorehealth.
    I am just wondering if it is my computer or someone else is having the same issue after installing the current Update KB4093105.

    When there are scannow integrity violations or if scannow cannot run there is information in the CBS log.
    The CBS log often has error messages and codes and may need to be decoded.
    Problems with updates may also be in the event logs or in the Windows error reporting logs.
    As you commented in the OP you can often fix with restorehealth.
    After fixing with restorehealth run the scannow again to see if the operating system has been fixed and remains fixed.
    If it has not been fixed or does not remain fixed then you can perform an in place upgrade repair with a Windows 10 iso or restore with an image backup.

    Final solution........ did a Repair Install. That fixes the sfc issue.
