|Looks like you have XCOPY and ROBOCOPY natively available. I think robocopy is the preferred method for vista:|
I believe the syntax is the same:
robocopy_c:\*.*_g:\_/e and enter, where G: is the drive letter of the external drive. So whatever the drive letter of yours is, substitute it for G. And each underline( _ ) is a space so wherever you see the underline, hit the space bar instead.
However, that depends on if the basic OS that's loaded even recognizes the external drive. If not, robocopy and xcopy are useless. In that case you need to boot from one of those Ultimate Boot CD's that are available for download from various web sites.
