If this is sfc.dll installed in %systemroot%\system32\ this is a native-code module used in the system file protection facilities the OS provides. The reason you're getting that error is because this is not a managed assembly. Reflector operates on the MetaData present in managed assemblies, which native modules do not contain.
Are you having a particular problem with sfc.dll that you're trying to investigate? If you can shed some light on the overall problem you're trying to solve perhaps we can point you in the right direction.

SFC should expand to system file checker.

If you are really curious, you can use any PE viewer to view the internals of this native binary. The two best ones that spring to mind are -
