Health Report is not available in Windows 10

Health Report Is Not Available

However, at times you may see a Health report is not available message! I have noticed that this message comes randomly sometimes, and if you check up after a couple of days, you will see that this error message disappears and you will be able to see the health status indicators, without having done anything.

Nevertheless, if you find that this message remains even after say a week, there are two things you could try.

1] Run Windows Update manually – and also run the Windows Defender Offline Scan.

Open Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and click on the Check for Updates button to run Windows Update manually.

In Windows 10 v1703, you will be able to access Windows Defender Offline Scan setting via Windows Defender Security Center. Once you open it, click on Virus and Threat Protection link and then on the blue Advanced scan link. Here you will see the option to run Windows Defender Offline scan.

2] Generate a system performance report manually.

To generate a system health report using the Performance Monitor, from the WinX Menu open the Run box, type the following and hit Enter:

perfmon /report

Perfmon basically carries out the following checks:

  • Checks for attributes of the operating system
  • Disk Checks – Checks for disk status
  • Security Center Tests – For the state of Security Center related information.
  • User Account Control
  • Checks Windows Update state
  • Check System Services status
  • Hardware Device and Drivers and Windows Management Infrastructure supported devices.

Once the task has been completed, you will be presented with a list of findings.

Restart your computer and see if it has helped.

If things have worked out for you, will see the following:

    I have “Storage Capacity – 1 recommendation”, but no way of viewing that recommendation. If I click to expand, it simply shows some extra white space.
