    False negative or false positive ?

    Win 10 Home 10586.164

    Did a Sfc /scannow.
    Result : found corrupted files but unable to repair some of them.

    Did a dism..../restorehealth.
    Result : Restore operation successful.

    Did a sfc /scannow right after dism.
    Result : found corrupted files but unable to repair some of them.

    I tried to do a chkdsk /f/r, but scanning and repair stayed at 10% for over 45 minutes.
    I aborted it. No patience for that.

    Do I have a false negative from sfc, or false positive from dism ?

    You need to reboot so it can repair files in use.
    Sometimes it takes 3-4 times(SFC/Reboot) to fix things.
