    sfc scannow/ question


    Would I lose any apps or data running sfc scannow/ or just in the event it couldn't fix the files. I know I would if I had to use Refresh or Reset. None of the tutorials make any mention of this.

    Hello Nuccii,

    A SFC scan will not uninstall anything. It will only restore any corrupted or modified Windows system files it finds back to default if able.
