    scannow and dism don't work right


    I ran sfc/scannow (trying to diagnose a sleep problem) and it found irreparable files, and I ran it again in safe mode, and again, irreparable.
    I ran dism and it couldn't access the source files. (Afterwards, I checked windows update, and it says that the computer is up to date, and the last check was at the time I ran dism!)
    Is this behavior normal for windows 10 pro x64?

    What do you mean they don't work right? Details!

    Are you using an administrative command prompt (right click Start, select Command Prompt [Admin])?

    Sorry, dark on dark (dark theme), couldn't see the context of the message.

    Have you tried running sfc /scannow Command at Boot?

    I didn't try that one yet, too lazy... maybe I will give it a go.

    You first need to run dism command to fix the component store then you can proceed to run sfc.
    You also need the Windows 10 ISO from Windows 10 Download - Tech Bench. extract with Winrar or 7-zip

    1- Create a folder on desktop: mount
    2- Copy install.wim to desktop from the extracted ISO in the Sources folder.

    Open Admin Command prompt, copy each line then run:

    Dism /mount-wim /wimFile:%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\install.wim /index:1 /MountDir:%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\mount

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\mount\windows /LimitAccess

    Dism /unmount-wim /Mountdir:%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\mount /discard

    After done with component store repair, run: sfc /scannow

    NOTE: You might have to re-run sfc multiple times until you get a clean message.

    thanks.
    I made the mount folder on my desktop, and I mounted a ISO of windows 10, it is an ISO that I downloaded after the big november update.
    I copied the install.wim file from it, and pasted it in the mount folder.
    I ran admin cmd prompt, and entered the first command.
    It returned the error pasted below, even though I can clearly see that the file is in the specified folder:

    Error: 2


    The system cannot find the file specified.


    The DISM log file can be found at C:\windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

    I just now ran dism check health, and it shows no problems.
    If no problems, then why did scannow say there were problems?
    this is the message I got:
    C:\windows\system32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth


    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.10586.0


    Image Version: 10.0.10586.0


    No component store corruption detected.
    The operation completed successfully.

    I saw this post on reddit.
    It sounds like maybe windows.old is the source of the "corrupt and unrepairable" files.? If that is true, there really is no problem to begin with.
