chkdsk,sfc/scannow RRS feed

  • Question

  • can i get an answer to the folllowing questions,because from ms Community they told me that i should refer to tech net for specialized answers on chkdsk and sfc/scannow commands under the diagnostic tools forum .so

    1)after running chkdsk i am getting the result that 'Windows examined and spotted problems into system file'. then i am running the chkdsk /r /f command but nothing changes..so can i do something else to fix those problems????..also what is the diference if i run  chkdsk /r /f or if I run chkdsk/spotfix?

    2)also someone gave me those commands for fix corrupt files found by the sfc/scannow

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    but someone send me this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833/en-us                      concerning about how can i view the detailes in the sfc/scannow results and how can i manual replace a corrupt system file from a known good Copy of the file...so the 2 dism commands are doing the same exact job with the manual way?

    also what means this instruction:

    *If you are running windows 10 (build 10049 or below) you need to have an ISO file mounted and need to specify where it is located with the below command

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:X:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess  Where "X" is the drive letter where the ISO is located.  Simply change the "X" to the correct drive letter

    If you do not have an ISO you can make one.  The instructions are here

    which is from the link:http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki/windows_other-system/system-file-check-sfc-scan-and-repair-system-files/bc609315-da1f-4775-812c-695b60477a93

    3)how for the same mashine when i am running sfc/scannow and chkdsk i am getting as results that 'Windows resource Protection found corrupt files but was unale to fix some of them' and 'Windows has checked the file system and found no problems' respectively ..

  • 1-What is the exact message from CHKDSK?
    2-Did you run CHKDSK /R or /F?

    3-What OS are you running?

    4-What were the results of SFC /scannow?  (did it say no intergety violations, found and fixed, or found and could not fix)?

    What is the underlying issue that you ran SFC & CHKDSK for?

  • read it your self and if you tell me that it is too hard . or you dont understand anything  in a queston like:       if there are other ways to fix the issues found by chkdsk command besides the chkdsk /r /f command...

    i will withdraw it..

  • 1-after running chkdsk i am getting the result that 'Windows examined and spotted problems into system file is not a message you would see when using check disk.  What is the exact error message?

    2-also someone gave me those commands for fix corrupt files found by the sfc/scannow 

    Scan health fixes nothing, restore health fixes as much as it can

    You did not tell us what OS you are running so I cannot comment on the quote from my wiki.

    3-CHKDSK examines the file system on the HD.  It has NOTHING to do with "windows resource protection found corrupt files"  System file check does. The conflicting error messages cant be commented on either because again you have given us out of context error messages that are not complete

    What is the reason that you are running SFC, CHKDSK, and DISM?  why did you want to  run those tests

  • 1)the exact message of chkdsk is 'windows spotted problems into system file' i have win 8.1 pro 64 bit,         then i am running the 'chkdsk /r /f' command but  it doesnt fix nothing..  so can i do something else to fix those problems????..also what is the diference if i run  'chkdsk /r /f' or if I run 'chkdsk/spotfix'?

    2)i am not saying  that 'sfc/scannow' fixes something, i am just saying that after i run the 'sfc/scannow' i am getting the result 'windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them'

    so someone told me to run those:

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    but someone also send me this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833/en-us. concerning on how can i view the details in the 'sfc/scannow' results and how can i manual replace a corrupt system file from a known good Copy (of the same file)...so the 2 dism commands are doing the same exact job with the manual way??

    also what means this instruction:

    *If you are running windows 10 (build 10049 or below) you need to have an ISO file mounted and need to specify where it is located with the below command

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:X:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess  Where "X" is the drive letter where the ISO is located.  Simply change the "X" to the correct drive letter

    If you do not have an ISO you can make one.  The instructions are here

    which is from the link:http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wiki/windows_other-system/system-file-check-sfc-scan-and-repair-system-files/bc609315-da1f-4775-812c-695b60477a93

    3)how for another mashine with win 8.1 pro 64 bit when i am running 'sfc/scannow' and 'chkdsk' i am getting as results that 'Windows resource Protection found corrupt files but was unale to fix some of them' and 'Windows has checked the file system and found no problems' respectively .. (i am attaching a print screen of that)
