Can't save drive contents

I have a machine that came back to me that I built a few years back.

I can not get it to boot. It almost gets into windows now. I did a boot fix and chkdsk. I want to go ahead and reformat the drive but I need to copy all the data first. Usually I attach the drive to my system and since I have simple file sharing turned off, I take ownership of the drive and then I can copy it all over. I have tried this several times and i get the error that I do not have permission to certain folders. I have it hooked up via USB. Any help why this is not working this time.???

Well it appears that it did work. It just took a while for it to take. It was copying when I left home. That is the first time I have had trouble like that. I think it is the first time I have used USB to connect though. I usually install the drive in my machine.

I'm glad that you prevailed, what's USB? Rhetorically speaking.

Really?

This is the first time I used a USB adapter. I am still having issue with a few folders. I have had to go to that folder individually and take ownership. No biggie, just time consuming.

If the drive is using NTFS, that can cause permission problems.
XP can take a while to process data for moving when copying larger (>1GB) amounts of data over USB, as well as if they are on the same IRQ as another device, copying files over ~700MB can be a bit flakey.

I use a live CD of nix that supports NTFS, or ERD Commander (still avaliable in some places as a free download). Never had a problem with these, including USB drives.

Great idea.

I did not think of that.

I will give it a whirl...

Only rembered as I had a similar problem with my brothers laptop.

He was looking at things he should've known better not to. XP wouldn't load - even in safe mode, and a repair didn't work. ERD commander allowed me to boot up, and just copied the important info (UNI work and photos - left the pics and videos behind) onto an iPod, USB pendrive and USB portable HDD (each only had a small amount of room). Format, reinstall and all is well in the world. For some reason the live CD (knoppix) wouldn't detect all the hardware, I might have to look for an updated live CD of something with NTFS read/write support and a GUI integrated.

Give Trinity Rescue Kit (TRK3) a look. I think you will find it to your liking.
