    Windows 8.1 Enterprise

    Hi juanvg,

    I can see corruption of some files on the drive. Please follow the directions below.

    1) Run DISM - Open an elevated command prompt > type Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    2) Once the tool has completed reboot the system.

    3) Run SFC - Open an elevated command prompt > type SFC /SCANNOW

    4) Once the tool has completed reboot the system.

    5) Run CHKDSK - Open an elevated command prompt > type CHKDSK /R > press Y to run on start up > reboot

    **Note: CHKDSK can take several hours to run, DO NOT INTERRUPT IT.

    After the steps are completed tell me if you encountered any error's.
