I have a dual boot system with Win2K SP4 and WinXP Pro SP2. I realize the limitations in RC with commands and folder access. To circumvent the folder access, I have performed the following from both OS as well as confirmed both drives are being shared and the needed folder on those drives: In the Group Policy editor\Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Select Security Options... * In the list of policies on the right, double-click the entry for Recovery Console: "Allow Floppy Copy And Access To All Drives And All Folders". * Select the Enabled option and then click OK. Despite this, I receive "Access is Denied" trying to access C:\xpregbak booting to both C: & D:. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance.
