Periodically after updates I will run chkdsk and sfc/scannow. This time I received the following notification of error and repair. Could an accidental shutdown (unplugged and took out battery before turning off computer). The only occurrence that I know of that could have caused this is a accidental shutdown where “Windows did not properly shutdown.” Would that have caused this error? Difficult to decipher what was in the log.
Verification 100% complete.
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them.
For online repairs, details are included in the CBS log file located at
windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For offline
repairs, details are included in the log file provided by the /OFFLOGFILE flag.
Ran chkdsk and sfc/ scannow again – no errors
Thanks. What is a good setting percent for System Restore. Or – how much space should I allow Windows to use. It is currently at 2%. Also – what is the best way to check that performance is working at its best. I usually check the Reliability Monitor which did not tell me there were some corrupt files. I did not see that until I did SFC /Scannow
Good practice …
You can create a restore point at any time, though Windows automatically creates a restore point once per week. It also creates a restore point right before a major system event, like installing a new device driver, app, or running Windows update.
Personally I do a restore point before I let windows do an update. For me it’s just a preventative. I also make sure that my software program for images has created its latest image. It’s just something I do.
i just let windows do its thing that being said i have never had an issue with a windows update so i have no fear.
Not sure you saw this:
Also Windows 10 seems to do a lot of updates. Should I just let it update as it happens or should I pause them to some future date (so they can work out the problems (if any)?
