    SFC /scannow ?? corrupt files? I'm lost...


    I was bored and had been having some issues so after a little reading I decided to run "sfc /scannow". Got the message that couldn't fix some of the corrupt files so I followed the next step and then the next step till I got to the point that the post told me if I wanted to avoid a drastic option to send my .txt or log for someone to check..what do I do now?? I think I've got that file saved on my desktop so, whats my next move? I'm beginning to think I could have just lived with the issues I was having..but I'm a little OCD. Help?

    The 1st thing you have to do is wipe out any CBS Log files you have now, because they pile up.

    Then you run a fresh sfc.

    Then you put the CBS Log file in a zipped folder and upload it here and hope someone can take a look at it and help you out.

    The files are in C / Windows / Logs / CBS

    Personally, I would just reinstall Windows 10, it might be faster

    Try sfc /scannow a couple of times and do a full restart. If that doesn't work try Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth from an admin command prompt. Then try sfc /scannow again. Come back for more advice if that Dism command fails or wants a source file. See also DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image
