    Thanks. I guess it belongs in the category, for me at least, of mysterious tools hidden within Windows. I see an article here at Microsoft about using that command: How to Repair a Windows Image

    LOL. I sometimes wonder if there's anyone alive who know every single command that exists. People write these codes and it seems that it's a question of hit or miss if anyone else finds them.

    There's nothing mysterious about CheckHealth and RestoreHealth. The feature existed before as CheckSUR for the purpose of checking and fixing the component store corruptions, but now it's a part of Windows 8. For this very reason, this is not a replacement for SFC that fixes corrupt system files. Actually, it's recommended to run SFC first, then RestoreHealth.

    Joseph also wrote a white paper named 'Understand and Troubleshoot Servicing in Windows Server “8” Beta' at the time, so you can google it with some luck.

    Thanks. I realise it's been around for ages, but with me at least, it's a question of remembering all these assorted commands. Much like Microsoft expecting Windows 8 users to immediately memorize 1000 or more keyboard shortcuts in order to get around 8 expeditiously - in other words not possible for the average Joe.

    Well, it hasn't been around for ages, because the current component store architecture was introduced only in Vista. And nobody remembers all console commands. This is what built-in console help, google and... forums are for
