    SFC finds corrupt files. DISM won't fix them.


    Hello folks.


    My Surface Pro was behaving weirdly so I decided to run a SFC /scannow.

    It finds corrupt stuff every single time I run it, even after multiple restarts and even DISMs.

    Shouldn't DISM fix them all?

    I've attached the sfcdetails.
    sfcdetails.txt

    Hope you guys can help me out.

    SFC - flags those files as corrupt

    If you ran > Dism /online /scanheath or /restorehealth they would of been fine..

    But the file corruption Flag was caused by the SFC scan

    Yes, I ran DISM and after that another SFC and even though DISM says it has repaired stuff, the next SFC finds corrupted files again.

    What should I do?

    Okay but what does that mean? SFC shouldn't be doing that, right?

    How do I fix it?

    The Scoop On KB 3022345 System File Corruption

    Quote from KB3022345 article.

    This update enables the Diagnostics Tracking Service in Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. This tracking service collects data about functional issues in Windows.

    This update contains the following two manifests that are occasionally updated by the Diagnostic Tracking Service:

    • telemetry.ASM-WindowsDefault.json
    • utc.app.json


    The two files are marked as static files in the update. When an advanced user runs the System File Checker Tool (sfc.exe), the files are unintentionally flagged as corrupted. There is no impact or corruption on a device that is running this update, and this issue will be fixed in a later service update. 



    Looking at your sfcdetails file that is what you are getting.
