    I think the key here is that you mentioned hdds (plural). I assume you store your data separately from your boot HDD as do I. Therefor, while you are partially correct. I had a system crash a few years back. It taught me to back up everything and store my data on a separate HDD. I had a malware infection after that and lost no data as a result.

    WINDOWS 10 PRO Updated to last Build

    I installed the update few hours ago; it was a very fast process (it took 3 minutes to complete) and smooth no issue at all as i can see.
    About the updates themselves: am I wrong or the"important updates" in W7 & W8 have always been generically descripted as "security patch" and "bug fix" and you had to dig deep in MS site to get some more also generic details?

    Important updates were always system and security patches, bug fixes while optional were usually driver updates and optional elements. Some descriptions of updates were very sketchy even than. You had to dig pretty deep to find out about details some of which were reachable only by small group of developers.

    Exactly what i mean CM, thank you for the detailed descriptions not really more different then it is now, and except that "small group" all windows user have always updated without digging deep; and I am happy I always done that and i will still do it.

    Note: H
    is the letter where the iso is mounted. If yours is not H, change it.

    If you get your iso from MCT, you will get Install.esd instead of Install.wim.
    In that case, Dism will return with the same message..... source file not found.

    Solution, download the iso file from Tech Bench which will give you the Install.wim shown from the Sources folder.

    A quick note to say a big thank you to davidhk; your advice to download the iso from Tech Bench and point DISM to a virtual mount of the iso has worked a treat - all files restored and no more corruption errors in sfc /scannow.

    Fingers crossed now for a stable machine, for a while at least...

    Sure, but guess what: you need a reliable OS to not to depend constantly on endless external copies because you can't know when it's gonna crash or when Microsoft is going to suggest to do a clean install. I mean, we're talking about minimal stability here. I only ask for an OS which would be able to stay strong a few months in a row, even if gets some patches here and there. Since July, I just had to re-install Windows 10 three times. First one, when the icons trouble happened; second one, when trying to upgrade threshold 2 for the first time on my laptop (it ended up on a clean install), and third one, today, due to the inconsistent sfc corrupted files message. I mean... And no, I'm not an unconscious user.

    At the end of the day, my feeling about we (the users) ending up being some kind of eternal beta testers, keeps going stronger and stronger. It happens with almost every kind of software nowadays, not only in Windows. Browsers are on a fast run for updates, OSs too. And in the meanwhile, we're just getting not 100% stable software. That pisses me off as hell.
