    DISM tool continually finds corruption


    A friend has been having an intermittant issue with a Win 8 app so I've run the DISM tool. When I run it, it says it completed successfully, and "the component store corruption was repaired". But if I run it again immediately, it gives the same message. I've rebooted too, same result, four times now. I've also run sfc /scannow, it does not find any errors.

    Any ideas what is going on?

    Thanks

    Have them run chkdsk /f from elevated command prompt. Reboot and let it run. Will take awhile, probably over an hour, for large drive.

    OK will do.

    By the way, I wanted to post about the problem that he is having with an app, that motivated me to run DISM to begin with.

    I wasn't sure if it was related to this issue, so I put it in a separate thread so as not to muddy the water. https://www.eightforums.com/general-s...tml#post434696

    Anyway, no problem in over a year now.

    I ran chkdsk /f. It found some minor errors and repaired them.
    It only took about 5 minutes. It only ran stages 1-3. I generally run chkdsk /r, which is all 5 stages, not familiar with the /f switch, I was expecting stage 4 too.

    But the DISM tool still produces the same message.

    I am working remotely, so I can't run any hard drive diagnostics from a boot disk.
    I went to the Lenovo website, downloaded/ran their Storage/Hard drive Diagnostic. It came up clean in all 6 categories.

    Thanks

    Not the right one if only took 5 minutes. Should take much longer. The drive has to be offline for it to run the whole thing, that is why have to reboot and run before full system loads.

    EDIT: Try offlinescanandfix as described here: CHKDSK - Check a Drive for Errors in Windows 8

    EDIT 2: Not sure you can do this remotely.

    EDIT 3: It actually may be the chkdsk /R command. Sorry, I get confused between the different ones myself.
