How Do I Handle These Reparse Points?
« on: August 22, 2016, 01:20:44 pm »
Hello all! When doing my regular maintenance on my system to keep things running smooth, I usual will end things with a scan using Windows Repair (All in One). Several months back, I ran a little more thoroughly scan than I normally would and it came back with some results I was unfamiliar with.

I've attached the scan log bellow, but essentially the "Reparse Points Found: 64...Scan Complete - Problems Found!" is what caught my eye. Now I would normally just allow the program to correct any errors it found, but I have absolutely no idea what the effect on my OS will be if I do this. I'm very particular on how I have things set up and don't want any of my system configuration being altered or reset in anyway (as I don't want to have to start finding out what things were possibly undone in Windows somewhere from the way I have it currently).

Can someone give me a bit more guidance on what the outcome of fixing these Reparse Points would be, positive or negative? It would be much appreciated!

Just run the Reparse Points repair, but if you are concerned then use Option 5 to back up the registry before hitting the button.
