    SFC /scannow - errors

    Hey all!

    I recently upgrade to Windows 10 2 weeks ago and for kicks I decided to run an SFC /scannow .. and It found a whole slew of errors! It's weird because I don't see anything wrong with the OS but I know there are according to the scanner. I ran it a few times, rebooted and even tried to use DISM to repair the image. No luck.. Anyone have any advice for me?

    This is what comes up once sfc /scannow completes.. I'm sure we have all seen this before..

    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some
    of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
    example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not
    supported in offline servicing scenarios.

    Had same problem; same sfc /scannow error...
    First running DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth report said: "The component store is repairable."
    After that DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth had "error 0x800f081f".

    So , download Windows 10 ISO, find install.wim file, (x:/Sources/install.wim) and copy it in new folder, (like C:/wim/install.wim)
    Now download NTLite and convert install.wim file from ESD version to normal; replace original file.

    After that run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:C:\wim\install.wim:1 /limitaccess and restore should start....
    After that run DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth and result should be: "No component store corruption detected."
    After that run sfc /scannow and see result; I had same problem like before but after PC restart, I run again sfc /scannow and result was - "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

    Just wanted to say thanks for this, I found my error after trying to troubleshoot the famous disappearing start menu bug, and was able to make DISM complete the repair with the .wim I got via your instructions. Thanks!

    command line is incorrect or something went wrong

    step one, find Windows 10 iso with same build as I have. Did that and downloaded the iso. Downloaded Nlite and executed program. Added win 10 iso in source and the program extracted some files. Found a convert tab and executed the function on the displayed files (as wim choice.) Extracted converted files to c:/wim directory. Used command line in post at beginning of thread. Results: Source file could not be found.

    I still have errors being indicated in SFC and dism. What now, please. and Thanks for any assistance you might provide.

    The latest update to Windows 10 did nothing for my issue. I understand everyone is busy with new issues raised by the update. My issue, however, has not been resolved by the update. I have read and re-read posts, articles, suggestions and yet none of them have provided a fix. SFC keeps showing errors and the DISM won't find and use any substitute source.

    Yes, I did try the utility. It continued to tell me the source could not be found. Now, after the Anniv. update, I do not have access to an iso file from which to extract the install material from. The "preferred source" has been removed because Microsoft isn't doing the free upgrade any longer. But even after the update, I continue to get errors with sfc.

    Please have some more patience, I will see if I can create an ISO of the Anniversary update for you :)
