Windows 10: sfc /scannow failed to repair certain files
sfc /scannow failed to repair certain files
So I've done a sfc /scannow for maintenance and noticed that there were some files that could not be repaired. And instead of writing this on a old topic I made my own.
I found a batch file created by "kronckew" on Windows 7 Help Forums
The code is:
rem delete old files
del /q %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log
del /q c:\sfcdetails.txt
rem run sfc
rem filter out non essential junk from the cbs.log
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >c:\sfcdetails.txt
rem open details in notepad
rem optional command to shut down & restart pc after running. this may be needed if
rem sfc replaces some critical files. uncomment (remove the 'rem') to activate.
rem shutdown -r
I will upload the CBS file and the file created by this batch.
Hopefully somebody can help me out. Because I really don't want to reinstall my Windows.
I'm running on a Windows 10 Pro 64x
Finnish but not finished
Did you run SFC /SCANNOW several times? This note from the tutorial SFC Command - Run in Windows 10:
If SFC could not fix something, then run the command again to see if it may be able to the next time. Sometimes it may take running the sfc /scannow command up to 3 times with Fast Startup
turned off and restarting the computer
after each time to completely fix everything that it's able to.
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
if reports as repairable then
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
your reports show a lot of mismatched hashes on your shortcut ( .lnk ) links
Hello, thanks for your fast reply.
I have done this scan multiple times. Also after restarting
I tried using the first command you told me to use.
And It's basically stuck for an hour now on 20.0%
I'll leave it on to scan for a while longer
Now what do I do ?
download the Windows 10 ISO from here > https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/techbench
double-click the ISO to mount it and note the assigned drive letter...
Change X below to match the assigned drive letter above...
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:wim:X:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess
Note: there is a link in my sig below to help with such matters as yours..

Have purchased a week ago a laptop with W10 Pro.
This needed updating to the latest version and like most geeks did a scannow check along with the usual Dism,s
As did the original poster files could not be repaired, downloaded the Techbench ISO, this rendering my computer to break down repeatedly, eventually being unable to start.
The problem is M$ updating is install. ESD, Techbench ISO is install.WIM, these being incompatible with each other.
I have reinstalled the ESD version and everything is running normally, just ignoring the so called corrupt files.
Hoping that M$ sort it out.
Well. clearly you do not have a handle as to what is the cause of your issue...
But it is not the install.esd or install.wim..

I clearly have a problem....purchased an M$ Surface Pro 4 under 2 weeks ago...now on my 2nd after the 1st had a total lockup.
This 2nd clearly has the same problem...ie- freezes, startup, etc.....trying disable fast start to see if that helps starting.
Google reveals many dissatisfied users, some even report 3 RTM,S.... looks like another RTM unless some helpful member can come up with a solution.
I installed Windows 10 today and after setting up everything, tweaking etc. I decided to re-overclock my GPU except I forgot what I used to have my core clock at so I accidentally pushed it a bit further than it could handle....
After a clean install and running Win 10-pro-64-10586.36 I'm getting this error.
Any quick help will be appreciated. I don't know what other test or fixer to run.
I'm experiencing an issue with a corrupt file "close.png". It's not causing any issues with my daily activities, that I'm aware of, but while attempting to fix another issue relating to message "updater crashed" I keep running into this file saying...
What affect will these errors have on Windows 10?
Are they repairable, if so, how?
This is on a new pc I bought today. Bad news! Where can I get an ISO 10240 which I can use on my external disk as a source file to repair - or where can I go for a source file? Appreciate any help. Thanks!
