This is useful for recording what, if anything, is corrupt. Use Dism /Online /Cleanup image /ScanHealth. This may take 10 to 15 minutes.
- /TestHealth : Checks if a component damage mark is already present in the register. It’s just a way to see if there’s corruption going on right now. Consider it a read-only CHKDSK. Use Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth. This could take less than a minute.
