    Issue with Dism/Online/Cleanup-Image/RestoreHealth


    I am trying to use dism/online/cleanup-image/restorehealth tool in an elevated command prompt to fix corrupt files that sfc/scannow is unable to repair. I keep getting this error message below:


    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.9200]
    (c) 2012 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>dism/online/cleanup-image/restorehealth
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.2.9200.16384

    Error: 87
    The online/cleanup-image/restorehealth option is unknown.
    For more information, refer to the help by running DISM.exe /?.
    The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log

    C:\WINDOWS\system32

    Hello pbm, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    No worries. You are just entering the command incorrectly. It should be this below with the spaces instead:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8


    Just to note, that dism doesn't repair corrupt files. Instead it fixes the component store that SFC uses to fix corrupted files instead.
    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    not trying to contradict you.
    But I havent been able to understand this because

    I ran sfc /scannow and got results saying it found corrupted files but couldnt replace them.

    I ran dism and after it finished, ran sfc scannow and got results that there was no corrupted files and everything was fine, which means that the problem was fixed before sfc even ran. even the cbs log said everything checked out fine.

    Hello dskiller,

    No worries, here's a great article below about the Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command with more details about it. Most likely, the dism command fixed the same corruption in the component store that SFC was also detecting. Once fixed, SFC will no longer report it either.
