  1. So after making a repair disk, Windows was still unable to diagnose or even attempt to repair the operating system. There are reasons why I will never buy a Windows based laptop. This shit cannot happen on a mobile machine. 


    When I'm at home, I have the resources to fix these kinds of issues, but not when I'm on the go. I have never had these kinds of issues with macOS. 


    sfc /SCANNOW finds errors but is unable to fix them, booting into safemode does not change anything, booting from a repair disk does not change anything, and trying to troubleshoot the issue just makes Windows recovery give up. 


    The best part is....I can still boot and the system appears to run fine! HOW IS THE SYSTEM SO DAMAGED THAT IT CAN'T BE REPAIRED.....BUT I CAN STILL USE IT?!


    If my games weren't only on Windows I would have kicked this piece of shit OS to the curb a long time ago. I'm fucking sick of it. Every single install of Windows 10 I've ever had has become corrupted or damaged in some way. Why is it so difficult to make an operating system that doesn't break itself? It's BS.

      Unfortunately, the system image backup is not only no longer maintained, but it also lacks the ability to exclude drives from the backup. Meaning I cannot make a backup because I don't have the space to back up my storage HDD when all I wan't to backup is my C drive.

      In the end it's the only way to fix windows sometimes.

      @DrMacintosh I use EaseUS Todo Backup which clones the entire drive.
