Dism Online Cleanup Image Restorehealth

It’s possible that missing or corrupted files are causing issues with Windows 10. This guide will show you how to use the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) and System File Checker (SFC) command tools to repair the installation.

Deployment Image Servicing and Management is a command-line utility for administrators in Windows 10 that allows them to build, edit, and repair system images such as Windows Recovery Environment, Windows Setup, and Windows PE (WinPE). Anyone can, however, use the programme with the local recovery image to fix common system issues.

Typically, you can use the System File Checker command-tool to check and replace missing or corrupted system files using the recovery image when troubleshooting a specific error, determining why the device stops booting correctly, or resolving performance issues. The downside to this method is that if one or more Windows 10 files in the image are corrupted, the SFC command will fail. If you find yourself in this situation, you can restore the image with DISM and then use the SFC programme to fix the setup without having to reinstall Windows from scratch.

We’ll show you how to utilise the DISM and SFC tools with Command Prompt to restore a computer to a healthy operating state without having to reinstall Windows 10 in this Windows 10 article.

Warning: Although the commands in this guide are non-destructive, it is nevertheless recommended that you establish a temporary full backup before starting because you will be making system modifications.

How to use DISM for Windows 10 image repair

There are three options for repairing an image using the DISM command. These options include “CheckHealth”, “ScanHealth” and “RestoreHealth.” You can choose which option you prefer to run first. Depending on the severity, you may also choose to use “RestoreHealth” to fix the image locally using other source files.
