Thanks for your reply. As I mentioned, I'm unable to boot to windows and have to do this in a DOS window in Repair mode. The laptop is not on a network, either. So unless I'm missing something here, Windows Admin rights don't apply in DOS.
I'm past troubleshooting why it's not booting to windows and want to do a clean reinstall.
I'm just asking about how to copy encrypted files off in DOS mode without getting the access denied error.
