    Problem trying to perform Win10 repair inplace


    I got to the point at the beginning where I can select to save all files and apps (that is the whole point of the repair inplace) and it won't let me select that option. It says something like your windows storage may not be secure.

    Is anybody familiar with this problem and or have a solution?

    Thanks --

    :)

  2. Sleep mode is not working properly in Windows 10

    Hello Robert,

    Thank you for your response.

    Did performing the reset to your PC resolve the issue?

    Did you try performing inplace repair and check if the issue resolves?

    Please post to us with more information to help you better

  3. When will Autochk be fixed for Creator Update?

    Hi Ross,

    I have checked my computer and seems Autochk is working good. You may need to perform an
    inplace repair. If the still persists after the inplace repair, I highliy suggest that you send a suggestion
    though Feedback Hub since the Creators update was just recently released.

    Problem trying to perform Win10 repair inplace

    Hi, I've done that 3 or 4 times, but not seen an error message.
    I wonder if you could repeat that, and quote the message exactly. Given the exact text, it is then possible to research it.

    Could I ask what has prompted you to do an in-place upgrade repair?

    Meanwhile, could you also run
    chkdsk c: /F
    from an admin level prompt and post the result?

    Ah THAT message.

    Now, you haven't completed your system specs, so I'm guessing you have more than one disk. This happens if one of the partitions that are created when Win 10 is installed is on another disk.

    There may be other possibilities. Essentially your partitions are not arranged as expected.

    So
    1. Please complete your system specs
    System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums - Windows 10 Forums
    2. Please post a screenshot of
    diskmgmt.msc
    (run from a command prompt)

    However, if what I think has happened has happened, recovering isn't so straightforward.

    Meanwhile, could you also run
    chkdsk c: /F
    from an admin level prompt and post the result?

    Could I ask what has prompted you to do an in-place upgrade repair?
    See more other post on this page about font issues. - ok, found it- that wouldn't prompt you to do that I think?

    Updated system spec.

    diskmgmt.msc:

    chkdsk always says drive locked === I ran it during boot but you don't see any results that way.

    Problem trying to perform Win10 repair inplace

    Hi: here's how to get the result (a bit awkward, but..)
    How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!

    Your disk partitions look normal from that..

    Now, is the build of the medium you are using for the in-place upgrade repair the same major build as your installed OS? I.e. 10586?

    Chkdsk from Event Viewer:

    Windows has scanned the file system and found no problems.
    No further action is required.

    I am using the same USB installation medium that I used originally to perform the initial clean install on the SSD.

    Hi, If that USB is build 10240- the first release of Win 10- it cannot be used for an in-place upgrade repair on what I assume is now a 10586 build (which came out last Nov). Put another way, when did you create that bootable USB?

    You can check your current build installed by pressing Windows key + R, type Winver <Return>.

    Other possibilities:
    Do you have at least 20Gb spare space on your Windows partition?
    Some suggest you may need to change language back (if changed) to one compatible with your installation medium.
    Have you relocated any folders (system folders or folders such as Documents, Videos etc)?

    150 Gb free on drive C:.

    Yes I currently have 10586 version and the usb was created within the first week after Win10 RTM. So that could very well be the problem. One would have liked a better error message.

    Thanks for all your help dalchina. I really appreciate it.

    Marking this as solved.

    Problem trying to perform Win10 repair inplace

    One last question -- if I recreate the usb installation from latest win 10 iso in msdn will that allow me to repair inplace?

    If it's an appropriate build then yes. DVD, iso file, USB are all usable.

    From the tutorial:
    5. To Do a Repair Install of Windows 10 with USB Installation Media

    A) If you have not already, you will need to create a Windows 10 installation USB flash drive.

    B) Connect and open the USB flash drive, and run the setup.exe file to start Windows 10 Setup. (see screenshot below)
