Accessing a Hidden+Protected Folder on NTFS Drive
Posted on 2004-09-02
I've just got a new laptop, and have discovered a folder in my harddrives (NTFS formatted) root called "System Recovery". This doesn't show up in explorer (even with show hidden files) and when I try to access it by typing in the name I am told I don't have permission to access it (I'm admin on XP Home).
I believe it's all the drivers etc. for my laptop as it has one of those useless recovery CDs rather than a proper windows one, and I'd like to copy it to a DVD just in case (plus it's annoying me as I can't get in it for the sake of it...).
Does anyone know of a way of accessing this folder from Windows?
