System File Checker - 'Could not perform the requested operatiion

    Question

  • I finally figured out how to get my PC into safe mode to run SFC.  I run SFC in safe mode as administrator and still get the error 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.   OK What's next?

    Thanks

  • Hi ,

    Sorry to hear that. Based on your situation, I think we could directly perform an in-place upgrade repair to refresh the machine. Refreshing the machine won`t affect the personal files.  It allows you to keep all your files, settings and apps. No product key is required. Activation is automatic. Boot from a Windows 10 ISO, choose "Upgrade" install.

    Best regards
