System File Protection[edit]

I have checked the citation [1], and there is no "System File Protection" or "SFP" words on the page. System File Protection in ME cannot have been replaced by Windows File Protection in 2000 since 2000 is older. However, SFP was replaced by WFP when XP was released - not when 2000 was released. There is nothing relevant about that in the reference. It is just a description of the feature, and I already know that. ONEtryout 10:16, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Ah, I see what you mean. I thought you changed because WFP did not exist in W2K. The wording is ambitious given W2k precedes WinME. --Voidvector 16:04, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
"given W2k precedes WinME" -- yeah but win2k is NT based, ME is DOS based, its not a valid comparison. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:00, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

SFC dependencies?[edit]

I know, not a forum, etc but I think it would be useful to have in the article.

Does anyone know SFC's dependencies? I tried using a batch file earlier to change the extension of files in a folder, and apparently it only works on the current folder, not the folder it's run from, and it renamed system files, including some of SFCs dlls, and renaming the few files to get sfc working is wayyyy easier than manually renaming thousands of files this damn script messed up.

Corrupted system files[edit]

Article currently mentions:

It offered scanning and restoration of corrupted system files

Would be educational to add a section to the article explaining why Microsoft (R) Windows (R) allows its system files to get corrupted in the first place. In other words, why does this fixer tool even need to exist? (talk) 18:00, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
