  1. SFC finds corrupt files, but can't fix them. DISM can't find source files. Windows 10


    After running many sfc tests, I always get the same result. "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them." Same thing with Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, at about 90.1% I always end up with "Error: 0x800f081f The source files could not be found. Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature." I thought it was because I had a faulty stick of ram, but I removed said stick, leaving 8gb left to spare, but I'm still getting these errors.


    Thanks for any sort of help. I have no clue how to pin-point the source of these issues.

    :)

    Can't get SFC and DISM to work anymore on Win10

    Ok, can someone help me out because this crap is starting to piss me off. There was once a time when you could simply run SFC and DISM to check Windows files integrity and if there were any problems found with the local files, Windows repaired it automatically. The reason why I want to run this is because I'm getting stupendously huge amount of errors and warnings in Event Viewer, but I don't want to run refresh because it'll mess up tons of apps.

    Commands I used:
    sfc /scannow
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Fast forward few years and we now have glorious Windows 10. Trying to run the same tools, they find errors but stubbornly refuse to fix ANYTHING. What's the god damn point of it then?

    Sfc finds issues but can't repair them and DISM constantly bitches how it can't find the source. All this used to work directly in Windows 7, but in Win 10, nothing. This was one of the best features to get OS back in good state and they go and ruin it. Because Microsoft!

    I've checked this thread:
    https://social.technet.microsoft.co...sfc-failed-to-repair?forum=win10itprohardware

    Nothing worked. And they keep mentioning install.wim where my Windows image downloaded from Microsoft itself! only carries install.esd which I can't seem to use with anything.

    I've also tried this tool:
    CodePlex Archive

    Which again wants .wim file and refuses to work with esd.

  3. windows 10 professional post installation corruption not fixed by sfc scannow or dism restorehealth

    Greg,

    The troubleshooting for problems with corruption found by sfc /scannow and dism/ online /cleanup-image /restorehealth were related to the upgrade from windows 7 pro to windows 10 pro. The source for the windows 10 pro upgrade was the Microsoft web site.

    It impacted some upgrades but not all upgrades. It is unclear why it impacts some and not all.

    The source for the windows 10 pro dvd was hp for licensed HP or Compaq PC.

    The problems with sfc / scannow and dism restorehealth corruption have been fixed.

    sfc /scannow now displays: windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations

    dism restorehealth now displays: the restore operation completed successfully. The operation completed successfully.

    These were problems with the windows 10 pro operating system downloaded from the Microsoft web site and/or installed from the dvd.

    When dism restorehealth finds corruption that it does not fix I don't understand how to guide it and find the source files that it is missing. In case there is corruption in the future please list the steps to use the windows 10 pro dvd to supply the dism
    restorehealth command with the sources to fix the corruption.

    Windows 10 SFC Unable to fix corrupt files


    Ok

    After cleaning Malware , the SFC is finding corrupt files , since this I have took the following steps

    Update to windows 10 using Windows 10 ISO , within windows 10 operating system while keeping apps and documents
    SFC / scannow ( many many times )
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth /source:wim:d:\sources\install.wim:1 /LimitAccess ( many times )

    Even after the common solutions above the SFC is still finding corrupt files
