I almost miss your post, but thank for get back to my concern, If there is a way to me to found out this policy, could you be available to pint point to me, please?
Normally, you don't have that feature, it is for Pro and above.

There are ways on the internet to enable that feature in the lower versions.

You would know if you enabled it, it would be a deliberate action.

Hello DocPT,

See if running a SFC /SCANNOW command instead may give you results.

You have some issues in the background there which need to be dealt with in another way -
Please download and save the CheckSUR tool from
(you'll need to look in the details for Windows 7, downloading from the Microsoft Download Center)

Run it - The tool can take anywhere from 5 mins to a couple of hours to run (or 'Install') depending on how much it has to do, and may exit silently - it may appear to freeze for most of that time, but be patient.
The result is logged in the C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log file - and an archive …\checksur.persist.log file

Then zip the CheckSUR.log and upload it to your reply.

I've uploaded a file - - to my OneDrive at Noel's OneDrive
Please download and save it.
Right-click on the downloaded file, and select Extract all…
Extract to the default location - which will create a new folder dptaa in the same place.
Open this folder - there should be two folders inside it (Manifests, and Packages)

Copy the content of the Packages folder to the folder

And the content of the manifests folder (.manifest files) into this folder:


Now run the CheckSUR tool again (it may take a while)

Post the new CheckSUR.log file, and the CheckSUR.persist.log file.

Then run another SFC /SCANNOW and post the new CBS.log file
