I have an earlier post with no reply yet..please bear with me here. How would I take a file from a 1.44 disk a: drive and transfer it to it's proper place on my harddrive in command prompt mode. I either have a windows explorer.exe corruption or it was moved somewhere else and I get a message to reinstall windows. I purchased this machine without a recovery CD and IBM tells me that there are none available.

This was an example of copying a file to a specific directory(C:\windows). You need to determine which file to copy and where. Make sure the are no spaces when typing c:\windows(the example directory). Which file do you want to copy and to which directory are you copying?
