    I'm not sure where you got that idea. One should always have a full and
    complete backup. That is a given with computers.

    Perhaps I missed it somewhere in the listings above, but were you eve
    able to successfully run sfc? Is it possible that the log file you se
    is just an old file?

    When I received the "Windows Resource Protection could not..." error,
    was trying to run sfc from the Vista boot disk command prompt. In cas
    it helps (or might help someone else with the same problem) - I wa
    able to launch it by using the following switches:

    sfc /OFFBOOTDIR=c:\ /OFFWINDIR=c:\windows

    (of course, you'd have to substitute the correct drive and paths if yo
    installed anywhere other than c:\windows). In my case, this allowed sf
    to run without the "Windows Resource Protection could not..." error.

    Anyway - I apologize if this has already been answered or gone over;
    just got lost in some of the postings.

    Happy Keystrokes and Footsteps
