    After starting the sfc command, I got the message:

    Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.

    What can I do now ??

      Ensure that you 're using a Windows Installation Media according to the Windows Version and Edition you try to repair.

    Great tutorial but everything I've tried when I input any other SFC command except for SFC /scannow just replies back with all the possible options almost like if I typed /?. Any ideas?

      Something in the command you are writing is wrong or missing

        Happened to me, i used backslash instead of forward slash. Misspell Any command and you will get that.

    With this method you wont need to reinstall the windows. It will just fix corrupted files

    WHY?
    your example:
    sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=D:\ /OFFWINDIR=D:\windows
    But in your example, the Windows Bootmanager is on C:
    for that, isn't it correct?:
    sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=C:\ /OFFWINDIR=D:\windows

      @volker01: Yes, the Windows Boot Manager is on drive C: but the Windows FOLDER is at drive D:, so the command "sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=D:\ /OFFWINDIR=D:\windows" is correct.

    Helpful if SFC works. But when it says there are corrupt files, but logging doesn't work for offline scenarios, how do I find which files are corrupt?

      @Mitch Turner: Before running the sfc command, give the following commands in order (replace the drive letter "D:" with the Windows drive letter)
      mkdir D:\Temp
      set WINDOWS_TRACING_LOGFILE=D:\TEMP\CBS.log

      After running the SFC command you 'll find the CBS.LOG file at D:\TEMP\ folder.

      @Scott Simpson: Make sure that you 're using a Windows Installation Media according to the Windows Version and Edition you try to repair. This means that if you want to repair a Windows 10 64Bit installation, then you have to boot your system from a Windows 10 64bit installation media
