A long while back I deleted a bunch of what I guess were some kind of “system” files.
They were .wmv &.wma files that MS installs with Windows. In my case Windows Vista.
I was trying to free up some space & I thought they were just deleted.
Apparently they leave a junction or link back to the winsxs folder even after they’re deleted.
What I want to know is there a way to fix this ?
The suggestions I found say to find replacements on another system.
If I had wanted these files I wouldn’t have deleted them .
I never watch or listen to them .
I would like a shorter & cleaner CheckSUR.log for spotting what might be a real problem.
I found that they’re still there by running the Microsoft Update Standalone Package for Vista.
This is what creates the CheckSUR.log & does some repair but not these files that are supposed to be “junctions to the real files” (I think) in the winsxs folder.
This isn’t causing an problems for my OS that I can tell. I would just like to fix it.
Here are just a couple of examples from a long list:
(f) CSI Payload File Missing 0x00000000 organize.wmv x86_microsoft-windows-h…-organize.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.6000.16386_en-us_344324d208e4b1d8
(f) CSI Payload File Missing 0x00000000 Butterfly.wmv x86_microsoft-windows-videosamples_31bf3856ad364e35_6.0.6000.16386_none_f3766b6019679882
BTW if anyone is interested this is available for Windows 7 too.
Microsoft Update Standalone Package
I haven’t deleted any of this type files from my Windows 7 on my laptop.
