comment How do I repair the corrupted files found by sfc /scannow? “Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.”
This is only tangentially related to my question, and IMO, is more of a comment and less of an answer. But as a reply to your post, yes, I have indeed made a backup of my important files, and will be replacing the hard drive as soon as I am able to. My hard drive still has life left to it though, as I am still using it daily and no more bad sectors have arised.
