    sfc scan could not repair some files


    When I ran the sfc /scannow on my system, it says that there are some corrupt files, but I don't know how to read the log to determine what files are corrupt. Attached is a copy of my log file.

    Hello Ton,

    The listed items in the blue note box at the bottom of OPTION TWO in the tutorial below may be able to help for now. :)

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

    Restart your machine

    Follow this tutorial (ignore the name)
    Windows Update Posting Instructions

    Pay attention to Step 4 (it's the CBS folder, not the CBS log)
    Ignore "create a new thread" in Step 5
    Attach the zip file as instructed

    Brink's suggestion should work too (basically the same thing, except the windows update tutorial aslo includes SURT)

    Thanks

    Thanks, Brink! I'll try running it some more to see if that helps. Does it matter that I'm running it from an external program? I run the sfc scan from Step 4 in the Windows Repair AIO tool.

    UPDATE: I ran the sfc scan a second time and it said that the repairs were successful. Good news, but I wonder how they became corrupted in the first place. Kind of makes me paranoid that I should run the scan more often.

    Your CBS log showed that the cache files for WinSAT were corrupted or modified.

    It could have been from anything that corrupted or modified the files.
