Whenever I have tried in the past to do an external sfc, for example:

 

 sfc /SCANFILE=d:\windows\system32\*.* /OFFBOOTDIR=d:\ /OFFWINDIR=d:\windows

 

..it always says, "windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation".  Is the above the correct syntax to check all files?

 

Thanks.

I am not sure if you can use the *.*  for the scanfile command. You can use the following that will scan all system files.

sfc /scannow /offbootdir=d:\ /offwindir=d:\windows

The drive letter of D:\ would be whatever drive letter you see at this point in booting the disk
