    Can't find corrupt system file from log "OneDrive.lnk"

    I hadn't been able to make a Flash Recovery Drive so I ran sfc /scannow, it said there was at least one corrupt system file it couldn't repair; I checked the log and found only OneDrive.lnk (screen capture attached).

    However I can't find where this file is located (so I can't replace it with a good copy [not that I'm sure yet where I would get a good copy]). I deleted OneDrive from App list hoping this would solve it but it didn't seem to.

    Any help appreciated, thanks.

    a. Onedrive: I did a ilttle searching for you and found this:
    Reset OneDrive to fix OneDrive problems on Windows 10
    (Google repair onedrive)

    Note there are two versions of Onedrive - there is also the older downloaded Onedrive client - a conventional program. I don't know which your shortcut refers to, of course.

    b. Flash drive:
    It is unlikely your problems here relate to SFC /SCANNOW

    Please say how you were trying to do this, and with what iso - Win 10? Kyhi's boot disk (from the top of the Software and Apps section here? something else?

    Example using Rufus: (note: you must get the parameters right else it won't be bootable):

    Create Bootable USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials
    Option 2

    You can also do this from a command prompt, with the appropriate commands.

    I would just delete/uninstall that, it maybe a spurious out of date Icon/Link in your Start menu.

    OneDrive was showing up errors in the Reliability Monitor after the 1809 (17763.55) update I had 2 OneDrive Icons in the Start Menu > All Programs one of which did not work. I uninstalled both, restarted, and went to the MS Store for the OneDrive App and installed it again.

    Now there is just one Icon working for OneDrive.

    SFC does not flag anything up, however it was run after doing that. I assume the installation of OneDrive afresh puts the right files into the component store.

    You can also go to Apps > Apps and features > OneDrive > Advanced Options > Terminate/Reset/Uninstall.
