copying files and dirs in xp recovery console
i've just had to go into the recovery console of an optilpex GX520 that keeps rebooting and appears to also have a corrupt system registry :eek:
basically i'm just trying to hook up a usb drive to get the files off the c: drive before i wipe the thing. i can see the contents of the c: drive fine but i can't use the copy command as it doesn't support use of wildcards and copying of dirs....there is no xcopy command available with the recovery console so i'm a bit stumped. There's no other way to access the contents of the hard drive. OS is screwed so not even so much as 'safe mode' so i'm using a winxp cd and recovery console to access the contents. But it's a bit pointless if all i can do is copy individual files.
Any suggestions ?
