    Whenever I start sfc /scannow (or verifyonly) i end up with 300-400MB less available disk space on C:

    I think this happens with DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth, too.

    Where did it goes and how can I get that (space) back?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I fixed it by deleting everything in C:\Windows\WinSxS\ManifestCache and C:\Windows\WinSxS\Temp. Got almost 1GB back :cool:
