When sfc /scannow says it can fix all faults..

    When sfc /scannow says it can fix all faults..

    I am getting the below error when running sfc /scannow.
    I have not been messing with the Windows folder other than changing ownership, so I set the ownership back to "TrustedInstaller". But still not getting a clear run with fixing the faults.
    I checked the log bug it's very long and going through it manually would take forever.
    Are there any tricks or known fixes for this problem? Anything I can do that's likely to help?

    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some
    of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
    example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not
    supported in offline servicing scenarios.

    Hello Martienne,

    Check to see if doing the items listed in the blue note box under step 3 in OPTION TWO of the tutorial below may allow SFC to repair the files afterwards.

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    Hope this helps for now,

    What it required, was first running

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    as suggested in the excellent guide that's being linked to. I didn't quite follow what precisely this did, but whatever it was, it meant the scan and fixes could be carried out afterwards.

Interesting work in this article about how SSDs behave under power failure. It's not good news, although as they point out it's much more likely to affect desktops more than laptops (with their built-in batteries). The ZDNet article is here: How SSD power faults scramble your data | ZDNet
