    DISM ERROR - it can't find the files.....


    Hi all - I just upgraded from Win 8.1. I'm having some problems and wanted to run the command:
    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    However the repair doesn't work, due to getting the error:

    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
    I can't find any clear information on how to set this source parameters. I have a Windows 10 installation USB plugged in. It's on N: and the dir command gives the following files:

    Code:
    09/07/2016  19:40               128 autorun.inf
    09/07/2016  19:40    <DIR>          boot
    09/07/2016  19:40           400,228 bootmgr
    09/07/2016  19:40         1,147,736 bootmgr.efi
    09/07/2016  19:40    <DIR>          efi
    09/07/2016  19:40            80,576 setup.exe
    09/07/2016  19:58    <DIR>          sources
    09/07/2016  19:58    <DIR>          support
    Is anyone able to help me with advise on what parameters to use for the Source for the repair files?

    Found it with the right Google input:

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

    Thank you so much for the response Dencal! Just saw it. Really appreciate the fast response.
    Windows 10 is just hacking by, so I'll be stopping by soon again, I think!
