Linux command structure / syntax to copy Windows/7 backups I found on USB drive
Posted on 2014-04-05
Can you please help me create the correct request / syntax using either Knoppix Live or UB CD to access my problem Windows 7 PC. I'm trying to restore newly installed Windows 7 which now fails to boot, and found my 4/1 backups and windows image backup files on my USB drive. Ccan copy via the correct I was trying to use any Live interface Knoppix or UBCD to copy the backups I found on one USB drive from 4/1 along with the backup windows image, but not having any luck. Can you help with this? I found the following, but still a tad confused.
The backups are on sdd1 which is on an external USB harddrive, and I'd like to copy them to another usb HD of greater size in the hopes I can use them to restore.
The copy sample for Linux I found follows
Type "mount" and see if /mnt/sda1 is (ro) for read-only or (rw) for read-write. If (ro) then try "mount -o remount -w /mnt/sda1" to re-mount it as read-write.
