    SFC found corrupt files that cannot be repaired but log file is clean

    iam running sfc /scannow on a fresh windows 10 Pro 1607 installation and get every time the same output: found corrupt files...cannot be repaired... but when i analyze the cbs logfile there is no match when searching for "cannot repair".

    dism /online /cleanup-image /checkhealth -> OK
    dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth -> OK
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth -> OK

    when i run sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows in boot environment, it didn't find any corruptions

    i ran sfc /scannow in safe mode serveral times and created a sfcdetails.txt file of the whole cbs.log file, but there same output: found corrupt files...cannot be repaired...
    And still no matches when searching for "cannot repair" string, see attach.

    Did someone observe the same behaviour? Should i ignore this?

    There are plenty of error reports about duplicate ownership.. search for 'error'.

    Forgive the obvious question - is your PC misbehaving in some manner, or are you running sfc out of curiosity?

    Yeah thats right, but its normal and a known issue with sfc itself, you can read here:

    Try it yourself: Do a clean install with Windows 10 Pro in a virtual machine (8 minutes) and run sfc / sould get the same warnings/errors.

    These errors are not the problem, cause they are signed as "Info" and not as "Error". PC is running good, no problems yet. But its curious that sfc fails -.-

    Edit: I think it will be difficult to found a solution, cause i forget to say that i customized the installation of my Windows Pro 1607 image (.wim file). I removed a lot of packages with an unofficial hack. Although it's curious that sfc doesn't log specific informations to locate the real problem

    Well, my sfc scan fails- but I have modified system icons so some 77 look like Win 7, and I've added support for old hlp file format. So it fails on those of course.

    So long as you know what you've modified and can make an appropriate decision on the log file, that's the best one can do.
