SFC /Scannow leaving files unrepaired?

If you rely on SFC to repair those corrupt system files found by CHKDSK, sometimes its response is ‘some files could not be repaired’.

Now there is a command that seems to help restore you system to health (and funnily enough, one parameter set is /restorehealth)

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

If /RestoreHealth is not an option – for older OS – try the

dism /online /cleanup-image /ScanHealth

option instead.

If you are stuck being unable to do a scan or other repair do to ‘pending actions’ message – and rebooting is not helping – then this may be the command for you.

dism /image:d:\ /cleanup-image /RevertPendingActions

To work on the current running OS, use /Online instead of the /Image parameter.
