    Hi

    I wish to move my Program Files and Documents and Settings directories to a secondary HDD (as demonstrated by this article - tested(dot)c o m/tech/2341-how-to-move-your-apps-and-user-files-to-a-secondary-drive/).

    I have downloaded windows 2003 system tools which contains the robocopy functionality and I have installed the Recovery Console from my XP disc.

    The problem I am having is that the Recovery console doesn't recognise robocopy as a valid command. I would really appreciate help with this if anybody has any ideas as to why this is happening. Thank you for your time.

    Charlie

    read the above threads and see if this clears your issue.

    also the threads refer to reading the robocopy.doc you will find the download on this google search page and when you click it is a direct link so I could not copy the link:
