sfc scannow : Corrupted files (Vista); Source file also corrupted [RECOVERY files on HD?]
Inspiron 1520, Vista OS. Came with installed RECOVERY drive (assume that was clean original version of Vista).
Ongoing problem installing SP1 - Fails (Error Code 80070017); running all types of diagnostics, including System File Checker (SFC).
Report shows several corrupted files that cannot be repaired or reprojected because "source file in store is also corrupted". [The 11 corrupted files: autochk.exe; contacts.js; gadget.xml; NlsLexicons081a.dll; devmgr.dll.mui; tcpmon.ini; fillitup.ani; WMIsvc.dll.mui; FireWallControlPanel.exe; usbort.sys; hccoin.dll;]
Not real anxious to do a complete wipe and reinstall due to number of user files, etc; plus, daughter goes back to College this weekend and I don't have a lot of time to fix her Inspiron.
1. Can the RECOVERY drive be reinstalled so that clean source files can be referenced?
