But there would be no other way to copy files. The restriction is the limited user account. Unless you booted with the VMplayer/ISO such that the Linux system mounts the partition. You could try the mount option: http://www.linuxforum.com/linux_tutorials/1/1.php
Might work but not sure.

Ok, before I try that, i'll show you what I tried yesterday:
Knowing that these commands didn't work, would the ones you just linked to work?
Please keep in mind that i'm new to Linux.

Type fdisk -l to see what Auditor picks up. VMware tends to put harddrives as SCSI, not IDE (/dev/hda tends to be IDE). Alternatively, try mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/win instead.

The directorys were made succesfully but when I try mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/win it returns "mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device". (same as before).

What directories? What was the output of fdisk -l?
October 18th, 2006, 10:32 AM
Opps sorry, you didn't say to but I had to mkdir mnt/win didn't I?
and the output of fdisk -l returned nothing (blank).

Can you post the output of dmesg or look in /var/message to see if it identifies the drives there? Usually it'll pick them up in a boot process. I suspect, however, that unless C$ is actively shared, it'll be unlikely that you'll be able to access this drive because Windows "owns" it (so to speak).

Yes, C$ is shared, by default.
and there is no "message" in /var.
October 18th, 2006, 02:52 PM
So if it's shared by default why not use the SAMBA mount (smbmount) to mount the C$ using the IP address of the host system?

Sorry, I was looking at the shares with Admin privs, the limited account won't let me see the shares via the "net share" command (access denied). so......
And my other system is down at the moment so I can't find out if the limited accounts C$ drive is shared with the \\192.168.*.*\c$ command
