    Info on the Windows components store


    Hi

    What is the Windows components store and where is it?

    What is the command that can repair this archive?

    How the SFC utility is able to use it?

    Thanks

    The windows component store services the windows image. It is the WinSxS folder. Use the DISM command to repair this, if needed. SFC uses the WinSxS folder to check system files, if it is corrupt things don't get fixed. This is a bit simplified, but I hope you get the general idea.

    I can not understand this phrase: "The Windows component store services the windows image."

    Why?

    Thanks

    SFC uses the WinSxS folder to check and repair if needed (service) the windows image.

    Thus, the Windows component store is the C:\Windows\WinSxS directory that contains the files needed SFC utility to restore the offline system image with the sfc /scannow /offbootdir=C:\ /offwindir=D:\windows command.

    If this store is corrupted, the Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command attempts to restore it.

    If this is right, why the sfc uses the "System Reserved" partition?

    Thanks

    It doesn't. The system reserved partition is used for bitlocker and booting - nothing to do with sfc or the component store.

    Excuse, why the sfc /scannow /offbootdir=C:\ /offwindir=D:\windows command has the offwindir option that points to the "System Reserved" partition?

    Thanks

    If, from the "Command prompt" window of a DVD of Windows 10, I had to run the Dism /Image:<Offline_image_primary_partition_letter>:\ /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:<DVD_drive_letter>:\Sources\Install.wim:<Image_Index> /limitaccess or Dism /Image:<Offline_image_primary_partition_letter>:\ /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:esd:<DVD_drive_letter>:\Sources\Install.esd:<Image_Index> /limitaccess command, I could also repair the Windows component store of the offline image?

    Thanks

    Bye
