Solved Why am I denied access to CBS.log file- fixing corruption?


#1
I fixed corrupt files with the help of Brink's brilliant tutorial: 'How to use DISM to fix Component, etc, etc..........
I then wanted to see what they were in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. I got as far as CBS.log, but Notepad opened & stated that I was denied access. Why? I am the Administrator. How can I overcome this restriction?

Hi robinpe,

Just right-click that document and select "send to" another location (ie documents). Once done, it should open for you:

Good luck.

Thanks for that My2Cents. I transferred it to 'Documents' & it opened with 'Wordpad'. However, there was so much information on the page that I couldn't figure it out!

Just to confirm you did follow this sequence:

sfc /scannow

(errors found)

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

(uncorrectable errors reported and logged)

Not quite, corruption was found on: sfc /scannow: 'Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files'. ... /RestoreHealth fixed it: 'The Restore operation completed successfully. The component store corruption was repaired'. I then ran sfc /scannow again & no corrupt files.

Glad you got it working so no need for that old CBS log now;eh?
