can you please tell me how to delete these files. I have tried to change permission but won't take AT ALL. I was finally able to access the sfc /scannow CMD and it says I do indeed have corrupted files but at the same time, it created these files.( attached )

also attached is the .CBS file.
I deleted all the previous scannow info from the date set on this rig.

1. can I delete them?
2. should I ?
3. how can I?




still can't access vssadmin list shadowstorage either - another story



I know, I know.... time to re image again ( 11hrs ) damn

thanks in advance as always buddies,

How about you tell us what you really are trying to do. Is it the VSS command not working, the sfc /scannow, or the files?


We can fix any of them but need to focus on what you really want us to do.

1-the files--they are all 1k files. Maybe pointers or shortcuts. Are you concerned for the space they take? or something else

2-the sfc /scannow--said you have cirrupt files. If sfc cant fix them then you need to do a repair install, or better still, a clean install

3-The VSS command not working. What does it say in event viewer? when did it stop working? did it ever work? Did you get into this mess just because you wanted to change the size of the VSS storage?

There is a poqexe.log in the winsxs folder. It normally only has a few entries. How many entries does yours have?

The CBS log shows many files could not be replaced because the file and its backup were corrupted. What it looks like is happening to me is the SFC is trying to replace files and queues them up, but cannot complete. I do not know what the shadow commands you are using have to do with it, but you seem to have a very large corruption problem. Or something is changing the files in your system, which is why I asked about the encryption aspect.

If you run SFC again, do you get the same types of files back you just deleted?
