By default, only users with Administrator or System rights can modify these settings.
SFCDisable (REG_DWORD)0 = enabled (default)
1 = disabled, prompt at boot to re-enable
2 = disabled at next boot only, no prompt to re-enable
4 = enabled, with popups disabled
NOTE: For options 1 and 2: Both of these options require a kernel debugger to be hooked up for those options to become useable. If a kernel debugger is not hooked up, Windows File Protection is not disabled.
SFCScan (REG_DWORD)0 = do not scan protected files at boot (default)
1 = scan protected files at every boot
2 = scan protected files once
SFCQuota (REG_DWORD)n = size (in megabytes) of dllcache quota (default is 0xffffffff or approximately 300 MB)
FFFFFFFF = cache all protected system files on the local hard disk
SFCDllCacheDir (REG_EXPAND_SZ)Path = local or network location of dllcache folder (default is %SystemRoot%\System32)
NOTE: Network shares for the dllcache directory are no longer supported.
SFCShowProgress (REG_DWORD)0 = System File Checker progress meter is not displayed (default)
1 = System File Checker progress meter is displayed
NOTE: The Windows 2000 source files location information is stored in the following registry location and can be modified to point to the drive letter of a volume that has an I386 flat folder of the installation files or change the SourcePath value in the registry to point to a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path instead of a mapped network drive.
The SourcePath value is located in the following registry key:
If the I386 directory is at C:\I386, the SourcePath value would be C:\.
If the I386 directory is at \\Servera\w2kflat\I386, the SourcePath value would be \\Servera\W2KFlat.
After you restart the computer, WFP and SFC /SCANNOW uses the new source path instead of prompting for the Windows 2000 installation CD-ROM.
