Hi, I ran command prompt with "sfc/scannow" to check if I have some corrupt files. Unfortunately the result was "Windows Protection System was unable to repair some of the corrupted files"..."You can find the details, in CBS.log". (Or something very similar, to that). Now I tried different angles in fixing this problem like the "Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth" but still has an error, and I just got tired of fixing this one and found nothing wrong with my laptop as of the moment.


Is it ok to have this kind of corrupt file? does it have any effects in the future? pls. enlighten me or if you have the best solution pls share,. thank you!

A corrupt file is a damaged file...if the file is important for Windows (I believe that most system files are important), then at some point, you may experience problems because of the file.


Corrupted files which cannot be replaced by sfc /scannow...would concern me, since this can be indicative of a problem with NTFS or the hard drive itself.
