Windows 10: Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk
Well I don't think so, if their was a background process not running, maybe...that could be it. BUT......the pendingdeletes folder was empty, and only my pendingrenames folder was not. This happens ever since my 1st clean install of Windows 10 Pro. So its nothing new. Its a problem I think with Windows 10, not weather I have a background process not activated. Also Dino, it IS SFC /scannow that makes those files appear.....nothing else. Happens every time I run SFC. Always takes a new update to remove and clean out those 2 folders. Their was one or two times that the DISM command actually worked, and DID clean them up. But most of the time the DISM command may only clean 1 of the 2 folders.
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
Always.....always has been because of running SFC.....always. Right now thou, those folders are empty as I went and restored my last image backup. In the process of updating about 6 different apps.....and windows just installed the last update we got on the 17th of DEC. This restored update was made on 12/11/15 . So their empty now, and will stay empty till I run SFC.....then it will happen as usual.
I should not have said that SFC has nothing to do with it but the cleaning part has nothing to do with it. Of cource, when you run SFC and if there's any repair made while Windows is running then the corrupted files cannot be replaced while online, but will be put in those folders for the next reboot.

Yes that is how its suppose to work.....just doesn't work on either of my TWO computers running Windows 10 Pro. That's why I asked about new idea's on how to clean <--- not delete manually or anything like that....just make Windows clean those 2 folders, correctly. Never really found a way that works 100% .....no real big deal....just pisses me off a tad, nothing more than that.
Booted Win10PESE - and deleted the files - no trick...
This has always been a problem for me trying to clean up this folder after running SFC /Scannow.
Do you have any tricks on how to make Windows cleanup this folder???
I do not run SFC... Dism is good enough for me...
Yes I suppose that's is one way to clean it up, just not the right way....at least for me. But on another note I did get rid of them and gained back almost a gig of harddrive space. I went and restored my last image backup, that I made with Macrium Reflect.
Then only had to update 6 programs, as my last image was almost 3 weeks old. I still think this is a problem with the SFC command and Microsoft should address this bug too. Because it does NOT always clean up after its self.
Thanks for this Image Health_Dism 'special edition' for testing under Windows 7.
The Readme file with the instruction appears to be identical to the standard version.
Currently the OS does not show issues with the standard sfc /scannow check but just in the case, I am interested to check how it works.
So if you integrated the Windows 7 support and I have VM running 7, which procedure should I follow in order to test correctly this special version, please?
for testing > the program and procedures are the same.......
Thanks but... if the the sfc /scannow does not find anything because the OS is fine, is there any way to 'test' it without destroying some system file?
run option 1 and see what it reports - it makes no system changes..
just to see if dism even runs..
post pic of window before hitting any key to continue..
then hit any key and choose option 0
then post dism details.txt created on your desktop

Thanks so much for this tool - it is really super.
I wonder if I could ask you to do one thing on the first post:
Would you make the download links bigger (a lot bigger) so they are more noticeable?
Does anyone know how this software can be configured to boot from usb on uefi/gpt.
I formatted usb using rufus on the relevant mode then dragged over the contents of another usb where it does work on bios/mbr set up.
But when booting...
Have a new Double Power 8.1 Tablet that I've upgraded to Win 10. Now I've got it set up just right, I'm attempting to create a Rescue Disk. Purchased a 16gb micro-usb drive which is successfully recognized. Ran 'Create Rescue Disk' from Windows...
I have a new laptop with win 7 pro installed. Once Win 10 is installed in July how will I be able to create a system restore disk?
Just sharing this.
I made another boo-boo today and deleted 500GB worth of media files (just movies and music). Don't ask me how because that's something nobody wants to do. :)
I don't keep a backup of these files. For me these are disposable...
