    File Corruption Problem...


    Using the sfc command, I found some corrupted windows files but it was unable to repair them... Is there any way I can repair the files without having to reset or refresh my computer and lose everything I installed?

    I found something called DISM, but when I used it, it said unable to find source files or something... I found my recover partitions, but they don't have drive letters. Anything I can do? Please please help...

    I have a Toshiba Qosmio X870-BT3G23 laptop

    I would like to try that, but the recover disc I created doesn't have a setup file on it. My computer does have recovery partitions though, but they don't have drive letters... Anything I can do?

    I have 2 Recovery Partitions: One is 450MB, other is 11.16GB
