I am trying to save some files from a harddrive with a corrupted windows OS installation. I used the ophcrack LiveCD to boot into the harddrive in order to save the files to a usb, (because I am unable to access the drive in ms-dos) but I am unable to save to the usb in ophcrack because it is  a read only file system. I am not sure what to do to change this and be able to write to the USB drive. ophcrack is linux based and there is a terminal to enter comands as well.

format the USB stick in one of the Linux FS like Ext2/3/4 and then copy the data to it. Currently it could be NTFS file system.
