Or whatever functions or tools from UBCD there is, like for example; FreeDOS?

I know from regular DOS, you can't copy entire folders, just single files one by one= a pain in the ass. That is why I was wondering if UBCD has something that can bypass that restriction within a function of UBCD itself?

Yes you can copy entire folders from dos. It is called xcopy. As for tools on the UBCD and how they work and what they do... Google is you friend.

There are tons of functions and programs in UBCD, care to direct me to where in the program "xpcopy" is? F1, F2?

from dos you CAN copy entire folders (or drives for that matter)

xcopy "c:\documents and settings\jhf\" "e:\BackupMyProfile\jhf" /s /e

or of course the reverse

xcopy "e:\BackupMyProfile\jhf" "c:\documents and settings\jhf\" /s /e

a simple "xcopy /?" would have given you the information you required.

Thanks jmblack.

But actually from [free]dos in UBCD, it doesn't even recognize my HD, while from "regular" DOS, it does recognize my drive.
