Dell E6540 / Win 10Pro / i7 processor / 500G SSD / 16mg RAM

 

Version 20H2 19042.746

 

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

Hello,

 

Ran chkdsk and sfc/ scannow again - no errors

 

Good deal on that

 

 

Windows does not like accidental shut downs, those can cause much problems such as corrupt files and un-bootable computer as well.

Thanks.  Anything I need to do further check if everything is ok?  Or is that enough?

 

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)?

No!    I don't think it's necessary to do anymore checking if you're not experiencing errors or issues ! 

 

Thanks

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.

Good practice ...
 
Also

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.

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
