I've been searching Google for an app to test backups for corruption but nothing has popped up so far... Perhaps Randy may know of something?
 


#22
I did verify the backup with acronis after completion and it said it was fine..
Its strange the sfc / startrep wont work correctly though..

Similar to the System File Checker is the DISM Tool. This will, if possible, download files to repair missing or corrupt data. Opn the admin command prompt and type:
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
Press enter and await results.

Thats interesting I didnt know you could use that with server 2008.
Just mounted the VHDX file on widnows 8 and tried to run it from CMD:
DISM /Image:G:\ /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
& Got a error about it not working on this type.

Dism is not part of the server 2008 build so I cant use it from the recovery cmd. Going to try booting from a windows PE environment and see if that works. If I boot to the PE environment will the /Online switch work or will it try to make changes to the PE environment?


/Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth are not supported on server 2008 or Vista.

Can you initiate a OOBE from DISM? or from an offline state?

It is supported by Server 2008 but the commands you can run are limited.

I do believe that /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth are for server 2008 r2.

I ram the command on a server 2008 R2 and that option is there on Server 2008 you just get the DISM is not recognised as a command.

Does anyone have any more tricks I can try to use to get past this problem?
I really dont want to give up on this.
