    Running DISM Tool

    When running the DISM Tool to scan and restore any missing or corrupted files on the drive, is it imperative to be connected to the internet, or can it be run offline? I have run the Tool both online and offline and both the methods has worked giving the same result. But the Command implies an internet connection.

    I had this discussions with someone recently

    The /Online parameter does not mean connected to the internet, it means running DISM against a booted system.


    /Online - Targets the running operating system.
    /Image - Specifies the path to the root directory of an
    offline Windows image.
