I was using XCOPY to copy files off a laptop hard drive that had a corrupt Vista install on it and would no longer boot. I'm copying from the LT booted to the Vista DVD, using the DOS recovery mode, to an external USB hard drive.
I was unable to copy the user files from her desktop and My Docs though because I get an access denied message.
I know the user name and pasword and she id a local administrator. Is there a ways to feed those credentials in to the the XCOPY command so that I can copy all the files off? Or some oher way to get the files?
