Repairing Windows

Just some random jottings on tools to repair Windows, release 10 and maybe 7 and 8 as well.

DISM (Deployment Image Servicing and Management)

Some of the options for this tool are not available depending on Windows version (Enterprise, Professional or Home) and also release.

Sample commands

  • DISM.exe /Online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
  • DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

SFC (System File Checker)

Tries to repair any file corruption in Windows files.

  • sfc /scannow
  • sfc /verifyonly
