Shawn,

When I try this:
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

Saying can't open


Also I did a sfc/ scannow 3 times and still can't fix corrupted files. I have a problem on one of my hard drive when I click on one folder on the other hard drive it crashes explorer.exe and the other folders on there are fine. Any idea for this problem

Thanks,

Kevin

Hello Kevin,

Are you using the command in a elevated command prompt (right click on cmd.exe file -> Run as administrator)?

Reboot your computer into Safe Mode.
Run cmd.exe as administrator.
Now you should be able to execute the command.

In addition, you might try running SFC at boot as well.

You must boot into safe mode.

Go immediately to an elevated command prompt.

Navigate to C:\windows\logs\cbs

type following command:
findstr /c:"[SR]" cbs.log > sfcdetails.log

type that precisely as written.

After the command finishes,
type following command:
DIR

you should see both a cbs.log fila and a sfcdetails.log file.
