What files does SFC replace?
Posted on 2005-04-28
SFC is a great tool to restore a corrupt XP OS to working when files are corrupt or changed. BUT - in order to prevent the symptoms from happening again, it tells nothing of what it did. Is there any technique or trick to finding out what files SFC reverts when ran? A log? something!!?? if I monitor the system32 folder as it runs, I can see it creating files named OLD***.tmp, but this is like a wild goose chase to figure out what file it used to be. Byte sizes, dates, etc. don't match up (of course). Just wondering if anyone can help me keep some hair on my head.
