Hello Brink, no I don't because Windows doesn't start anymore.

In that case, see if you may be able to boot into Safe Mode to run SFC instead.

If not, then you might see if doing a startup repair may be able to help with the startup issue if you haven't already tried.

I have been trying the Startup repair about 40 times now and the there is no way to get this pc back to live again. I think it is time to get the last backup but my Problem is about one year old and it a pc from a law firm. They don't like to make backups but they probably will complain if all their data is lost now. :-(

If you like, you could create a live Peppermint DVD/USB to boot from and backup what you can from Windows first. This way you could hopefully be able to import the data back afterwards.

my Problem is, that there is no CBS.Log file after scanning with sfc like described in method 1.
After booting I have drive X: and my Windows is in drive D: and the CBS.Log file isn't anywhere.
after you run the sfc scan, enter the following:

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

where directory is the drive letter of the target destination. this will create a .txt output of everything sfc did

note that drive letters will differ from when in Windows and when in Windows PE (recovery environment). use diskpart (steps below) to find out the current drive letters and disregard the fact that they are different from what you are used to seeing.

open an elevated command prompt window and enter the following commands:

1. diskpart
2. enter
3. list volume
4. enter

Hello Donald,

What files are missing?

If system files, did you already run a SFC /SCANNOW command?

If you a restore point dated before this happened available, then you could do a system restore to quickly fix it.
