want to do a quick backup of files on a windows server 2008 (although likely the same answer for most any os.
logged into the server as a domain admin. don't have permissions to userdata folders to just copy the files onto an external hard drive.
is there a simple / clean way to be able to get access? I can take ownership, but that may break things. seems the admin should be able to see into those folders to see if the user has loads of music, etc. right?
