 Post subject: How To Copy Files Over?

Hi,
I need to backup some directories from my HDD to my USB pen.
It won't let me backup directories from the recovery console as it only lets me do it one file at a time.

Will UBCD allow me to do this?

I can boot into UBCD fine but have no idea on how to use it, if somebody could guide me on which option to select then I can copy some of my needed folders over from c:\ to J:\


EDIT: OK I have searched and it seems FreeDOS may be the program to do this.
I was able to get into FreeDOS via DOS/LINUX bootdisks and then selecting FreeDOS.
The program would then load after a series of prompts which i just let timeout.

Then the command line would be:

Q:\>

I realise I could use xcopy from here to copy folders but how do I access my C drive or my J drive (USB pen)

when i try:

dir c:\

it says the drive c:\ cannot be found.

Any ideas?

OK as an update I can now access my files in freeDOS.

After I typed in: ntfsdos it allowed me to access my C drive as D

Now all I need to know is how to access my USB pen which is actually in drive J:\ i think!

Currently it thinks nothing is in there.

Thanks to any help it's really appreciated.

EDIT: OK now in trying to access my USB I am typing in aspiusb

I then place an X in the "running ASPIUSB..." prompt and select OK.
(Note I did not change the config settings, it has ehci usb2.0 and verbose and install usb to aspi/scsi driver selected)

The following then comes up:
Quote:
USB Device : VID=numbers PID=numbers HS
VID=numbers PID=numbers HS
ASPI Device: ID:0 LUN:0 - USB DISK 2.0 PMAP
: ID:1 LUN:0 = GENERIC USB Storage-SMC I16A

Installed ASPI manager.
Some more text here

Available ID = 0
ID 0 = HD .. USB DISK 2.0
#1 : PRI DOS(FAT32) 4009MB drive = R:


So it's recognizing my USB as it is a 4GB mem stick. But if i try to access it from drive R as it states i get nothing.

For example if i then try dir r:\ it states:
Volume in drive R has no label
Volume Serial Number is blah
File not found.

There are files on the stick, I cannot copy files to it either it just says "Cannot create destination file"

Any ideas?

Im curious as to why you dont just use knoppix? Its a linux live cd with build in ntfs read/write support. Its free and 100% legal. :)

Live cd means it doesnt install anything onto the computer, and is completely self sufficient. I believe it automounts drives it detects when it boots up (last version I used was 4.0.2 so its been a while and dont remember)...so you only need to copy and paste the contains from your C: to the usb drive.

Download (latest is 6.0.1):

Command to use xcopy. It moves directories (folders). Read up on it.

So would be:

Code:
XCOPY source:\file_location destination:\file_location


For anyone else interested.
