Accessing External Hard disk

#1 Post by venkat27 » Wed Sep 02, 2009 4:15 am


I am trying to save the hard disk image to an external USB hard disk. I could not access the drive when using the BootCD.

Can anyone explain how to access a USB hard drive from Ultimate boot cd?

Thanks a lot.

Most foolproof way is to download UBCD V5 and run Parted Magic. It can mount both NTFS volumes and USB drives, so you can easily copy files from one to the other.

If you are not interested in the other stuff on UBCD, you can always download Parted Magic directly instead.
