    Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation


    I hope I'm posting this in the correct thread....I am also having problems with SFC /SCANNOW as mine
    stops at 20% with this error

    Running SFC /SCANNOW stops at 20% with error
    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification 20% complete.
    Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.

    Other things I have tried

    1. Checked Windows Modules Installer and it is set to manual

    2. Ran all 3 DISM codes
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    and got No component store corruption detected. The operation completed
    successfully for all of them

    3. Ran diskpart and volume list and found no windows directory
    file is attached as well as my sfcdetails

    I'm running Windows 10 Version 1511 Build 10586.318

    Is there anything else I could possibly try....thanks in advance

    You could download and reinstall the ISO from and then click on 'Download tool now' near the bottom of the webpage...follow the prompts. All you are doing in downloading and installing/overwriting the OS again. I have used this procedure several times in the past 8 months, and will do this procedure on all devices before the free update to 10 finishes the end of July 2016

    Thank you kindly for such a quick response...I have d/l the media creation tool. when I run this am I going
    to lose anything, just wondering how much of a backup will I need if any

    Is there a tutorial for this procedure, hoping I don't create more of a mess when running this

    Will I be following any of these procedures?

    Hi again skeetz.
    I would suggest you create a mirror image of your entire computer hard drive, something you should do on a regular basis. (AOMEI, Macrium free, or ms own system found in "Control Panel/System and Security/Backup and Restore (Windows 7)", left hand side of the window..."Create a system image". Personally I use Macrium Reflect free...a great program. You can and should back up your personal files, again on a regular basis. You are going to install the ISO and keep all your personal files. The same procedure you used to install win 10Pro(if you upgraded from win 7 or 8.1 Pro). If your computer came with 10Pro, still the same...'keep all your personal files', see clip attached. Disable antivirus programs before starting. I have Home and Pro devices...both my Pro devices have corrupt 'sfc' due to ms inability to correct since Nov 2015....but various sources say 'they' are working on it. That is why I intend to install ISO before the 'free' upgrade expires. Any questions, I will be available all day (UK time zone).

    Please copy the entire CBS folder into a compressed folder and attach it to your thread.

    I'd like to see your Disk Management using the custom mmc I created.

    Step 1: Download this zip file (contains dmDskmgr-vd.mmc)

    Step 2: Double click to open the compressed folder
    Double click dmDskmgr-vd.mmc to launch the custom Disk Management console
    You'll get an output similar to this:

    Press Alt+PrtScn to grab a snapshot of just the Disk Management window
    Open Paint and Ctrl+V to paste it, then save the image
    Attach the image to a new post.
