sfc finds corrupt files but cannot repair

When I run my system backup program, it fails with a message about corrupted files. So I ran sfc /scannow, and it found some corrupted files which it said it could not repair.

So I ran the disk checker, which found no errors on the HD.

So what other program can I run to check and correct the system files? If any.

Win 7 boots fine, and seems to run without problems, but I now cannot run a system backup. I have been using Image for Windows for many years with no problems. It backs up my Win 10 partition (on a separate HD - I have a multiboot setup) without problems.
