    Default Question about using system file checker

    For Windows 8 and later, Microsoft recommends restoring image health before running system file checker.



    The elevated command prompt syntax for restoring image health is: dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth and the system file checker syntax is: sfc /scannow

    My question is, is it necessary to run them both in the same powershell session? To put it another way, can you run the image restore health command, close powershell,and run sfc /scannow in another session?

    Sure you can do that.

    This may help - SFC or DISM first.
