Cluster-specific files are not protected by Windows File Protection (WFP).
This issue occurs because the Sfcfiles.dll, which is the file that keeps the location of protected files, has references for cluster-specific files as being in the C:\Winnt\System32\Cluster directory. That location is incorrect.
