im trying to copy files off a system with a virus on the os to a flash drive.
thus, ive booted the ubcdwin4 cd rom, went to file applications, used the explorer to see the files..

and i see the flash drive, i can click and explore the flash drive, i can see the hard drive, when i try to copy the my docs folder to the flash drive, it doesnt do it!
i tried to highlight and 'copy to folder' still  no go...

i remember in the past i was able to copy files off a bad drive easily in ubcdwin4, now for some reason when i do copy/paste, it doesnt actually do it.

a. which utility/program/tool in ubcdwin4 should i be using for this.

also, its not letting me create a new folder on the flash drive, as i thought id copy and paste asll ther indiv files into the new folder since the folder copy/paste wasnt working.

win xp pro
[older] compaq desktop

in the past this worked on other systems

See if you have volko commander or any ( commander ) type software installed as a file / explorer.

Also you can add in better file  managers if needed.,or run one manually from the flash drive

 I hope this helps !

Make sure your flash drive is not formated NTFS  not all version of linux work well with writing to ntfs.   They read ntfs fine but depending on which kernel writing to ntfs could be problematic and depending upon the version of your ubcdwin4 may have issues with that.  Bart PE since its windows based to begin with might be a better option for you.
It probably worked in the past because thumb drives were smaller and almost always formated fat32 but with our larger thumbdrives  and files now a days
