My computer crashed and I am trying to backup my Documents and Settings directory from my XP installation CD at the CMD prompt to a USB drive. The problem is access to directories from the NTFS file system. Windows directory seems to be the only directory I cane access. Can I change the attributes to access other directories or is there a way to gain access to the directories to copy from and to these drives (both my harddrive and usb drive).
Thank you for your response. So I read that I have limited access through the XP Recovery Console. Do you have a suggestion on how to backup my directories and subdirectories in documents and settings from my harddrive to my usb drive?
