I'm trying to create a bootable USB stick with UBCD on it. I have run ubcd2usb, but it gives me the error:

C:\Users\rbradley.ADC\Downloads\ubcd528\ubcd\tools\win32\ubcd2usb>ubcd2usb C:\Us
ers\rbradley.ADC\Downloads\ubcd528 e: /f

I know the USB stick is probably too small (it's 512MB), but why am I getting Access Denied?

Thanks - Rowan

You need to run the command prompt in Administrator mode.

Right-click on "Command Prompt" and select "Run as administrator".

You sure that's not a 256MB flash drive?
