Ok open c: If you can highlight the file LuResult.txt right click
go to propertities Attrubites make sure the box read only and hidden are unchecked. If they are checked and after you uncheck them can you now access
this file or can you copy it to D:?

ok the box with hidden files is unticked and we still cannot copy the file.
Go Start>programs>accessories>system tools>backup click on backup
this will start a wizard click on NEXT backup files and settings NEXT
check let me choose what to backup NEXT
this should give you a window with a list of desktop my computer etc.
click on the + sign next to my computer this should now expand and show you
the drives. Click on + next to drive C then + next to documents and settings
and work your way down to Ansar.Ansar30vwoybhl then click on the file
LuResult.txt this shoul put a little blue tick in the box click NEXT this should ask you
where to backup to you can either go to A: drive (If you have one) or just click on
BROWSE change to D: and put it on D: drive leave the filename as backup.bkf
click on save click on NEXT click on finish this should start the backup
(we only want to do 1 file to see if it works no use backing up everything if we still can't get to it.)
Ok we should now have a backup of the file.
Now to restore it to D: Drive
Start the backup program again This time we want to click on RESTORE files and settings NEXT click on the + sign next to file this should then show backup.bkf and the date you created the file. Click on the + sign and it should show C: put a tick in the box and click on NEXT this should show a box saying completing the backup restore wizard.
CLICK ON ADVANCED> click on the arrow restore file to. > alternate location click on
browse click on my computer click on D: then pick a folder where you know you can find it click Ok click NEXT NEXT NEXT Finish.
Then Find the file on D: drive Can you access it?
I assume you do know what is in the LuResult.txt file?
Another question why aren't we using the xp on C: drive?

I will give a screenshot link to the file that I am mostly trying to get back:
also, I do not know what is in the LuResult.txt file. I can't use the C: drive as it kept getting screwed and started up with the drive im using now, so I had no choice basically.

instead, safe to a root file, like c:\oldstuff

Ok, I could not find the "Backup" option , so a link is below so you can check it out and see what I have done wrong:
and if its possible, please inform me if you have used that UBCD for Windows disk and tell me how it went.

go to help and support and type in backup

Copy a couple of larger ones (or you can copy a whole folder)
Just be CAREFUL If you backup the folder favourites and
restore it watch where you put it you don't want to overwrite your current favourites
folder, Unless of course you don't want the current favourites Remember this will replace current files on D: if you want it to.
so be careful where you restore.
you should now be able to access the files you need.
Please let me know how you go
