    SFC can't fix corrupted files

    I just got this problem where windows search does not function (I do not have cortana, using dutch windows). So i thaught i could fix it with SFC /scannow. But with this scan came the message

    "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix someof 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."

    The results are found here. But i do not understand them enough to see what the problem is, and how i can fix it. So I hope you guys are able to give me some advice on how to fix those corrupted files and hopefully so fix my windows search.

    I searched the internet for some advice, there i found this command "dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth" But this did not work, asked for a image source.

    To summon up:
    What should i do to fix my corrupted files and fix my windows search (Restarting search.exe in the task manager did nothing)

    Use this method when your sfc /scannow reports corrupt files found but unable to repair :

    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.
    When finished, it will give you a report.

    If your dism report " Source files could not be found ", don't panic. There is a solution for that.
    Just post back.

    After running the line as administrator, i am getting this:

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.10586.0

    Image Version: 10.0.10586.0


    Error: 0x800f081f

    The source files could not be found.
    Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see Configure a Windows Repair Source.

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

    Ok. Please make sure you follow these instructions to the letter.

    Use the Tech Bench link below to download your version of Windows 10.
    Make sure you select the same Edition, Language and bit version your computer is now running.

    Once you have the iso downloaded, right click at the ISO > click Mount > leave it there.

    Then open the elevated command prompt and copy and paste this................

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:H:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess

    Note : H is the drive where the iso is mounted. Change it if your driver letter is different.

    When it is completed, you should get the report that the operation is successful.
    Now run the sfc /scannow again. It should be ok this time.

    Thank you the errors en corrupted files are gone!
    Only I'm still not able to search, do you know how to fix that.

    What i found was troubleshooting "search and indexing", but the troubleshooter did not find anything. The next thing i found was restarting search.exe from the task manager. Sadly this does not fix the issue, and search.exe is mostly not findable in the task manger, only when you just searched something.

    You got any ideas on how to fix this?

    On second thought, maybe a Repair Install will be able to fix that.

    You already have the ISO downloaded and saved in your computer. Yes ?
    Go to the location where your iso file is stored > RIGHT click at it > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
    Installation will begin.
    You will be able to keep all your files, settings and apps.
    No product key is required.
    Activation will be automatic.

    Please do that and see if search is fixed.

    It's about doing a Repair Install.
    Take a look again.

    I did not, as soon as i get home i will try it. Sounds like a reinstall of the windows folder. But I will try it when I get home
