    Vista SFC guide (VISTA SP1)

    There is a handy MS guide to using SFC /scannow with the Vista OS. A bit different than with XP.

    Go to: SFC VISTA

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Bob. Thank you for drawing attention to this valuable information. I notice that Windows Vista Home Premium is not included in the list of applicable products. Vista HP does have the System File Checker tool so I wonder what the limitations are compared to its use in, say, Vista Business. Or maybe MS made an oversight in not putting Vista HP on the list........

    John,
    I would think that it applies to the Vista OS in all of it's forms.

    SFC is definitely available in the home version. See How to analyze the log file entries that the Microsoft Windows Resource Checker (SFC.exe) program generates in Windows Vista for example.

    It could be that some of the command line tools referenced in the KB article are not available in Vista Home versions.
