Windows 7: sfc .offbootdir /offwindir question

sfc .offbootdir /offwindir question

I'm trying to figure out how to use the sfc /offwindir and /offbootdir parameters.

When would you use them?
Why would you use them?

The best info I've found so far says they are for use when running sfc offline (Windows RE).

/offwindir=win = Used with other sfc options to define the Windows directory (win) when using sfc offline.
/offbootdir=boot = Similar to /offwindir, this sfc option is used to define the boot directory (boot).

So if I normally boot from C: and wanted to run this from Win RE, would I specify:

/offwindir=c:\windows /offbootdir=c:\

and if so, what does this do for me?
