SFC /scannow now I have 3,522 files that won't delete

Hello All,

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,


~Carmine

Try taking ownership of the folder, enable the default admin account, boot into safe mode then delete em..

How old are those screenshots, The reason I ask is the date on your taskbar is from last month. Not sure if thats part of your problem but I had some issues once when my date and time were wrong. If that's not the case, please disregard this.

Man that was a good catch! yeah, date and time not right on computer causes all sorts of weird problems. Get that fixed first and make sure your BIOS time is correct as well.

Are you using encrypting software? Have you checked with those folks?

I have not seen SFC make extra files. On mine, it replaces ones that are corrupt, if it can, and that is all.

I'll try the admin choice.
I have my win7 laptop 7days 10min 40seconds behind (atomic clock time ) just so I can clone when I need to ( like a situation like this )

I also think this is why I can't access my vista laptop.


but I'll make changes and try.


thanks guys !!!

I do not understand why you need to be off on date and time to clone?
