    System File Checker (SFC) stuck at 10% for 10 hours - Windows 10

    Hi Stefanie,

    This can be due to an entry in the scan that could not be repaired. To better understand your concern, we'd like to know the following:

    • The entries posted in the scan. To check the sfcdetails.txt file, you can perform the steps posted in the
      How to view details of the System File Checker process section of this

      link
      .
    • The version of Windows 10 that you're using on your device. To check this, you can perform the steps posted on this

      link
      .

    We look forward to your response.

  3. System File Checker Corruption


    Hi All

    Discovered system file checker after removing Avast, offline repair so far not working the way I want it to, My drives are configured boot ssd, D for storage, yet the list in Command prompt on startup up shows X:\Windows, well tried C, D, X and still wouldn't run

    Already done 3 Clean installs of 1803, just want this solved, might try another online scan of sfc, and see if it can repair that way

    Waits for anymore advice

    Online scan only gets to 2 percent then stops

    Stated could not complete requested operation when I finally got offline system file checker to run

    CBS Log, too big to post here
    One drive share if helps any
    Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

    Should I A not worry on this issue, B continue worrying on it

  4. How to scan & repair a single file using System File Checker

    System File Checker

    To make a long story short, when I contacted Microsoft a few days ago about a problem I’ve been having, one of the possible solutions they gave me was to use the System File Checker tool. When I asked Microsoft’s Virtual Agent about it, she came
    back with “…To run it:

    • Select Start Windows logo Start button, and in the search box, enter
      Command Prompt. Press and hold (or right-click) Command Prompt (Desktop app) from the search results and select
      Run as administrator.
    • Enter DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth (note the spaces before each "/").
    • Enter sfc /scannow (note the space between "sfc" and "/").”

    After the steps, she provided a link to learn more about the tool (System file check (SFC) Scan and Repair System Files & DISM to fix things SFC cannot).
    However, that did not help me much.

    Regarding steps 2 and 3, do I have to press “enter” after “…Restorehealth,” or do I type “…Restorehealth sfc /scannow” AND THEN press “enter?”
