I cannot access Windows XP and I need to transfer some files from my C: drive (where Windows was installed) to my E: drive (clean of everything Windowsey, just meant for photos and whatnot), or my USB pen drive.
The problem is that I cannot manage to copy them from the Recovery Console from the Installation Disk, since it keeps giving me an access denied error whenever I try to either access the documents folder or copy anything.
Is there some sort of program (hopefully CD bootable so I don't have to unscrew my floppy disk into that computer) that can allow me to do this, so I could then fully format the C: drive to reinstall Windows?
(Oh, the reason why I can't access XP in that computer is because a thorough virus scan found a bunch of viruses, rooted on the Windows folder, and apparently someone had set it to Delete All... not that it matters that much, since even the explorer was damaged apparently.)
