hello, i have a 32 bit winxp set up on a 64 bit amd machine. My problem is that windows doesnt start and always restarts the machine. The quick solution is to format the drive but i have some files on C drive that need to be rescued, so i want to copy them to D drive by using ubcd411. But i dont remember if the C drive was ntfs or not..so how can i copy some files from C to D using ubcd?
Best regards.

You better use a small linux distro like, Damn Small Linux or Puppy linux to copy the files.

Click on "Files" this will open emelfm.
Navigate to /mnt/
Right click on the hda1 entry and click mount
After you finished copying files, click on umount to ensure that there is no data loss.

hda1 stands for the first primary partition on your first hard drive.
hda2 to hda4 stands for the second, third and fourth primary partition on your first hard drive.
hda5 is the first logical partition within an extended partition.

hdb: second hard drive
hdc: third hard drive

If you have sata drives you have to type (see F2 for more information):
dsl sata

Puppy Linux is a bit easier to use, but needs 128MB of RAM at least.

The ntfs driver of DSL is a readonly driver. Try to write the files to a FAT (FAT16 or FAT32) partition instead or use Puppy Linux. The ntfs driver of Puppy Linux can write to ntfs partitions too.
