Windows 7: No Problems, Checking and Found Errors

OK, so did this and all went fine. Ran SFC and it completed without errors this time. Here is the log (was a bit larger so zipped)

If SFC /scannow didn't find any errors you should be good to go.

You can Run SURT tool again & post it's logs if you wish.

Auto tool to find logs and copy to your desktop attached.

NoelDP is the best!

OK, thank you wben353 and NoelDP for your help.

A couple of questions.

Q1 - Would be OK to run the Update Readiness Tool every month just to catch problems?
Q2 - Run SFC Scannow and even if it says things are OK, any harm running the Readiness Tool?

No harm running either, SFC Scannow will only fix some issues, not others and you have to search for log.

If you run SFCFix.exe it will run SFC Scannow and post log to your desktop SFCFix.txt.

If that indicates SURT problems found & not fixed, running SURT will either fix, or identify the location & file/folder at issue.

I run SFCFix.exe. faster than SURT.

Once you get your machine up and running with no issues, I'd strongly recommend a System Image backup.

I've had issues with windows backups both file/folder and full system (image) too many time to trust it.

I use AOMEI backupper (free) I like free.

You have many choices on backing up your machine, full system image, incremental, differential. Full image backup gives you choice of entire disk including free space (don't know why you would do that) or as I do backup without free space. It also gives you choice of compression ratio for backup. Anything more that recommended increases backup time but makes file smaller, less compression faster.

You can schedule whatever type of backup you wish to do. You can also mount an image and access it just like you would, say C:, D:, just like a drive. You can copy, paste, delete, any & everything you want.

You have to make recovery disk to restore Image, not sure about other backups. If you have to restore image AOMEI needs to run from cd (obviously you can't replace the system files, etc. if windows is running and using them) I create the disk Windows PE version, other choice is Linux, & if your not familiar with Linux commands this is way over your head. If you notice in my info below my name, I have dual boot win7x64 hp & Linux Lite 2.6 x64. Linux Lite entire operating system is less than 1 meg, lightning fast when I surf the net. x32 programs cannot access more than 3 gig of RAM & hard drive size limits. x64 versions have RAM limitations but it much higher, same with HDD.

If you check (Google) external hard drive, etc. you will find deals all the time. I purchased a 3 terabyte 3.0 USB External Hard Drive, Seagate Backup Plus, which by the way comes preloaded with their backup software for about $100 on sale, about a year ago.

Please see Best External Hard Drives 2015. Prices are falling continuously. I have backups for my sister's laptop, my laptop, my desktop, multiple backups, and still have gobs of space left.

Oh yes. Thanks. Yes I do run images; whole. I have a 2TB drive on a network; use macrium free. Just got done imaging btw that system. Saved me a few times and imaging back in like 7 minutes or less (SSD's, gotta love 'em)

But I need to dive in to this realm of checking some more; to expand my knowledge. Just need to get in the habit. When things don't rattle it does not mean there is a problem. And usually problems do not go "hey I'm right here man".

I will do these steps more on a schedule rather just doing these checks whenever. This is why I come here; super nice ppl, super great support. I got one more system to work on in another thread, but again, thanks to everyone who helped and thanks to 7F!!!

Windows 7 checking for drive errors on Boot
The last couple of times I've booted up Windows 7, prior to launching the OS, It has felt the need to perform some sort of drive error checking task, and as far as I know, I haven't scheduled any 'checking for errors' type-tasks for my hard drive. What's going on? Thanks in advanced.
