I had windows XP installed on my computer, when it failed. I used the xp installation CD to try to use MS-DOS to copy the "My documents" folder to my external hardrive before i wipe the hard drive. I am trying to copy C:\docume~1\anders~1\mydocu~1 to D:\. When i tried to copy them, it said below the command, "Access is denied". What am i doing wrong?
Anonymous mad DOS user.
P.S. I am using a different computer to sent this message because MS-DOS is all i can use on my PC and I cant open WINDOWS XP.
D:\ is the CD drive. I don't think booting from a Windows XP CD loads the drivers for a USB external hard drive.
