Windows 7: Image restore query!

Every time you run SFC /SCANNOW and find a problem you should reboot.
At times the problem or some of the problems
will be repaired on reboot.

Thanks for the expert suggestion.:)

Hypothetically, during a clean W7 install, how often, at what steps should one do a sfc /scan....

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1

I run sfc from time to time as part of routine maintenance. It almost always comes up good.
However, before installing Windows updates I always do the following:
1) Run sfc/scannow to make sure all is good.
2) Make a system image
3) Install the updates
4) Run sfc/scannow again

On a few occasions Windows updates have resulted in system file corruption (or at least the sfc /scannow operation believes so). On these occasions the system files have often not been repairable. I then perform a system image restore and attempt to track down the culprit update. Recently MS have adopted a rollup update procedure which makes it difficult to identify a specific problematic update. The best strategy here is to reimage, wait a couple of weeks and try again.

This sounds burdensome and it is! You can thank MS for that.

Thanks mjf for the expert suggestion.....

1. Btw when you perform it, do you create a full backup?

2. You must be creating an image each month....?

3. If, each month and the created is fine, do you delete the old one or overwrite it, once checked?

Just for future reference when you run sfc /scannow you can use the command below to just show relevant details from the cbs log.

Run from elevated command prompt and the file will appear on your desktop.

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

This makes it easer to see what SFC scan has done.
If there are any files it could not repair you will be able to see which files still need to be repaired.

Thanks @MTS52 for sharing, would keep in mind. :)


findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt" to be run only if sfc /scannow displays an error...correct?

SSD target detected... Attempting Trim.

Though SSD trim is checked... Any ideas.

Never happened with earlier version, seen with version 6.2.1549.


This is still happening, while restoring an image, despite that have none sfc errors on the new install.

Image creation is swift as always, but restoration stalls for 5-7 mins after verification process of the backup is successfully completed.

Is it cause that I/O displays a slower Write vs Read....approx 900 Mb/s (read) and 200 Mb/s (write)?


OR is a normal Macrium Reflect behavior?

You can re-run this program to test again with the same data block,
